Ain't it great about how everyone can seize upon a disaster like Hurricane Katrina to advance their own political agendas?
No, I'm not innocent.
I see Glenn Reynolds pointing to the by-now familiar photo of flooded school buses in NO. It seems like one heck of an oversight when these buses could have been used to get people out of town.
Of course, then what do you do? NO at least owned the Superdome, so presumably putting people there would be cheaper in terms of transportation and lodging if people didn't have to stay too long. Maybe someone just made a really bad bet.
But then whenever I see a really questionable decision, I usually find that lawyers were involved. What do you think will take longer - reconstructing NO, or settling the last of the lawsuits?
