And While We're At It. . . . . . . .

. . . . . Please take a look at this post on Markus' blog, the Wet Bank Guide on Katrina Cottages, an eminently better idea than "can't put 'em in a flood plain which we haven't mapped yet and they won't stand up to a Cat 1" FEMA trailer.

These are a wonderful idea and so forward thinking.

But then why would I expect this logic to extend to FEMA. Maybe I need some coffee.

This has gotten very little press so far - someone should run with it. FEMA is closing all of the New Orleans camps/tent cities that volunteers are staying in, as of April 10. These tents have been housing the volunteers gutting houses from organizations ranging from ACORN to Habitat for Humanity. the only stories on this so far on the net have been:
Christian Broadcasting Network:

Talking Points Memo Cafe

This is ridiculous -- the very least that the federal government should do is house and feed volunteers coming to help.
