"We're from the Government, We're here to help..."
If the American public learns one thing from this entire mess, I hope they learn that putting a bunch of incompetant, bureaucratic oafs all under one roof is that all you get is a REALLY BIG group of incompetant, bureacratic oafs. Department of Homeland Security, my ass! If this is how they deal with just a natural disaster, if terrorists turn a major city into Hell's Picnic, we will be TOAST! At least, with discrete organizations, there was a chance SOMEONE had a plan and some brains to go with it.
This is worse than any conspiracy theorist's nightmare. This is a complete SNAFU put on speed and taken to the cube power!
