Stating The Obvious (Again)

Hurricane Katrina is the worst disaster for the United States since the Civil War. (Sorry, I stole that from someone else - but it is true). Over the next three weeks, the number of bodies that will be found will be staggering. And although everyone wants to be involved in the "blame game", I'm surprised that George W's playing of a guitar after the disaster doesn't rival Clinton's video clip of "I did not have sex with that woman". (As a friend of mine told me, "I don't blame Bush, I blame those hired by him to be in charge of the press that allowed that photo to be taken".) (Sidenote: The only thing more horrifying than the disaster is Oprah Winfrey showing up in New Orleans to capitalize on it).
