As much as I enjoy taking occasional potshots at Bush, I find that the whole blame-game thing is entirely unproductive when action is required. I'm sure the powers-that-be will take a good hard look at all aspects of government regarding this natural disaster once the victims are out of harms way and on a path toward recovery.

Blame Bush if you want, but just as Richard Clark polluted the 9/11 Commission by finger-pointing, blaming anything other than Katrina for NOLA's woes is unrealistic and unproductive. NOLA was goin' down any way you look at it. It was always a matter of when, not if...
Have to agree with you Ron--though the preparedness level, in terms of FEMA funding and the Army Corps, is still a legitimate point of discusion. Would better funding of these agencies have prevented this devastation? Certainly not.

Either way, I think the issue is best looked into after the crisis has past, and it doesn't look as if that's going to be anytime soon.

Of course not, but better preparation will mitigate the damage considerably.
