'The Washington Post reported on Friday that five of eight top FEMA officials had come to their jobs with virtually no experience in handling disasters. The agency's top three leaders, including Brown, had ties to Bush's 2000 presidential campaign or the White House advance operation.' - CNN

Oh really?

In its infinite wisdom, the New York Post chose to run this story at the bottom of page 11. The coverage of Destiny's Child at the Fashion Rocks concert was on page 3.

At least they're consistent.

Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Michael Brown is being relieved of his duties in managing the Bush administration's Hurricane Katrina relief and recovery efforts, The Associated Press has learned.

Brown is being sent back to Washington from Baton Rouge, where he was the primary official overseeing the federal government's response to the disaster, according to two federal officials who declined to be identified before the announcement.

Brown will be replaced by Coast Guard Vice Adm. Thad w. Allen, who was overseeing New Orleans relief and rescue efforts.
What are you talking about, Brown had lots of experience with Arabian Horses... Wait, oh you said disasters... well, perhaps he dealt with some disasters at Arabian Horse shows, like that time they ran out of white linen napkins in the VIP tent.
