Picayune

Here's why they call it the Times Picayune.
"Some critics have questioned if the government knows what it is doing dispensing so much money so quickly - and especially whether the small and beleaguered Federal Emergency Management Agency, which will administer much of the aid and reconstruction contracts, has the resources to handle so much cash."
After complaining about the slow response to the Hurricane flooding by the federal government, they now suggest that government slow down to allow them to carefully consider how to spend money for recovery. These people are nuts.

It is all about making Bush look bad, no matter what happens. I heard Rev. Jackson last night pounding on the racial issue again and I felt embarrassed for him and his "constituents." Furthermore, he was insisting that locals should receive the bulk of the clean up contracts. He mentioned "Halliburton" about six times in 3 minutes as if to inflame the masses with the mere mention of the evil company tied to the administration. Forgetting, of course, that the disaster impact area is the size of the United Kingdom -- I guess we should bus people back to NO from Houston and give them a broom and hope for the best.

I find it ironic that the Times "Picyune" is named after a colonial Spanish coin. I really think their biggest concern is that the local corrupt and inept political machine is in disarray and too weak to milk off funds for special interests as they usually do...the cash is just coming in too fast to react and set up the normal siphons
