Solonor has an entry up that I can fully agree with:
Not trying to backseat drive here, but I wish there were more guys like these two involved in coordinating rescue and relief:
Lt. Gen. Russel Honore. Mayor Nagin said of Honore: “…he came off the doggone chopper, and he started cussing and people started moving. And he’s getting some stuff done. They ought to give that guy—if they don’t want to give it to me, give him full authority to get the job done, and we can save some people.”
Houston Mayor Bill White. Seeing that the Astrodome wasn’t going to hold everyone after all, the city kicked out the pre-planned conventions from other centers. White stepped up and said: “If it takes someone suing us, then sue—and then explain to the American public.”
Figured I should balance some of the critical entries I’ve made about the situation down south with some positive ones as well.
