Get Rid of Brownie

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, as fires continue unabated, the mayor of New Orleans begs for more firefighters. So FEMA calls in 1,000 firefighters and ... sends them to Atlanta. For training. To be "community relations officers." H/t Andrew Sullivan who has some criticism for the feds regarding Hurricane Katrina's aftermath as well as accounts from eyewitnesses.

Update: The Bishop of Corpus Christi comes to the feds' defense. H/t Bettnet.
