The Man At The Top
FEMA Chief Michael Brown
Questions are now being asked along these lines in the wake of a lack of adequate response to last week's Katrina disaster, as they relate to FEMA's top disaster chief
In any event, simple semantics or a minor case of "resume embellishment" aside, Brown's qualifications as previously submitted may still be seen by some as not enough to handle the responsibilities of his appointment, as demonstrated by the lag time in response to the events of the recently ravaged Gulf Coast. Clearly, this is yet another development that will be interesting to watch as it unfolds. And hopefully, the needs of the people in the case of future threats of natural disaster will be the primary consideration in the outcome.
Well, the weekend has arrived, and once again it will involve my usual efforts toward getting things done in terms of "focus"( if only). And yes, as we all know, our story pieces, manuscripts, etc., will never write themselves. But then again...if only they could. : )
Let's make it a great weekend, all. Peace.
