"The city has allocated funds for the first 50 families, and as they get situated and settled, we'll continue to try to find the resources to help these families out. If we don't do that, we will create a new class of poor people, who prior to the hurricane had homes, had apartments, had jobs, had cars. FEMA is just completely off base." - Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin
On how much FEMA dough has come in:
"Oh -- zero. It's just like the mayor of Baton Rouge yesterday, a big doughnut."
What does FEMA do? Apparently not much.
