say it ain't so
Bob Harris has put together a map showing the parishes in Louisiana that Bush apparently authorized for disaster aid before Katrina hit. They are all of the non-coastal parishes, none of the coastal ones. Harris is doing an admirable job trying to disprove his own findings, in hopes that even the Bush administration is not this bloody incompetent. So far, he's finding that they are. The only things more depressing and outrageous are that a) I would not be surprised if his map is accurate, and b) I doubt this story will get legs or have any ultimate consequences for the president.
