Better yet, time to hang Brown

FEMA Director Michael Brown demonstrates what it means to "be prepared." Given the number of people who have needlessly died owing to his malfeasance, may I suggest he's deserving of a criminal trial, not simply a pink slip.

From the AP:

WASHINGTON - The government's disaster chief waited until hours after Hurricane Katrina had already struck the Gulf Coast before asking his boss to dispatch 1,000 Homeland Security employees to the region — and gave them two days to arrive, according to internal documents.

Michael Brown, director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, sought the approval from Homeland Security Secretary Mike Chertoff roughly five hours after Katrina made landfall on Aug. 29. Brown said that among duties of these employees was to "convey a positive image" about the government's response for victims.
