Yes indeed. Does the President sleep well at night that he was responsible for this:

NOLA doctors: 'We had to put down our patients'


I think that link didn't work...try again:

NOLA doctors: 'We had to put down our patients'


Here's a little tale about "A White Republican Guy Who Doesn't Get It."


Oh boy what a day...definitely a malt scotch for this ex-pat Scot in Texas. Did everyone see the photoblogging post set to the words of Pink Floyd's "Us and Them"? Excellent stuff.

THIS is everywhere. And should be.

Michael Moore's letter to Bush voters is everywhere as well.

I also liked this musing from another Michael.

Shakespeare's Sister, your brother's sister is also RIGHT ON

This is a great photoshop.

Not sure if that is a photohshop. THE QUEST FOR PIZZA


Back for another round, and bearing a link to Digby hitting the proverbial nail. You HAVE to check out those maps.

Bad joke...beware...

Q: What is Bush's position on Roe vs. Wade?

A: He really doesn't care how people get out of New Orleans.


Just stopping by quick to enjoy the night sky and to listen to the conversation. You all have a good week. I hope I do.

Bush at 38%.

In Katrina’s wake, the president’s popularity and job-approval ratings have dropped across the board. Only 38 percent of Americans approve of the way Bush is doing his job overall, a record-low for this president in the NEWSWEEK poll. (Fifty-five percent of Americans disapprove of his overall job performance.) And only 28 percent of Americans say they are “satisfied with the way things are going” in the country, down from 36 percent in August and 46 percent in December, after the president’s re-election. This is another record low and two points below the satisfaction level recorded immediately after the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal came to light. Fully two-thirds of Americans are not satisfied with the direction of the country.

Terrence, your post on not getting it is excellent. Thanks. Here's my version of something the same from a few days ago. If Katrina had hit San Antonio I and mine would have been some of the "left behind" - no car, no money - I definitely get it. C

some REAL N.O. contamination to worry about


Back again with some hot tips for tomorrows blogging.

The Guardian says "Hundreds of mercenaries have descended on New Orleans to guard the property of the city's millionaires from looters.
The heavily armed men, employed by private military companies including Blackwater and ISI, are part of the militarisation of a city which had a reputation for being one of the most relaxed and easy-going in America." Familiar names? Fallujah...Baghdad...New Orleans...

and if you want a great op-ed with lots of thoughroughly quotable stuff, try the Guardian again:

"Slipstreaming behind the annual rituals of sorrow and reverence for 9/11, George W Bush has decreed that, five days later, on the 16th, there is to be a further day of solemnities on which the nation will pray for the unnumbered victims of Hurricane Katrina. Prayers (like vacations) are the default mode for this president who knows how to chuckle and bow the head in the midst of disaster but not, when it counts, how to govern or to command. If you feel the prickly heat of politics, summon a hymn to make it go away; make accountability seem a blasphemy."

Saw that, C. Thanks for the link on the editorial.


Kirk and I mark the anniversary of 9/11 by getting very, very drunk. It's a tradition, since 9/11/02, when Kirk ran into the truth online. It started small - just a link to links of so-called "conspiracy nuts". But Kirk followed the trail through the silly shit and found the scarey shit. And, being someone of sound mind and reasonable, logical mentality, was horrified at what was in front of him. How did we respond (since certainly he informed me of his wanderings)? We got shit-faced drunk. It's a tradition now. We also have a toast: "May the truth come out eventually, and may we somehow help in bringing it about."

I send you to, for those who want some truth.
