Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back."

Hurricane Katrina wrap-up.

For today's post first check out the movie available from this update on Crooks and Liars. I know it's old, but it's only five minutes long and is worth seeing. Seriously. If you haven't seen it, you need to.

Then, read this article from the Washington Post on Bush's intent to find what went wrong with the Katrina relief effort. You know... like he went out and found Osama bin Laden.

Then, go read this article from the New York Times explaining how Michael "Brownie" Brown of FEMA just happened to decide to resign. Of course, he denies that he's being made a scapegoat to protect certain other parties.

Then watch this video from this post over at Crooks and Liars. You know- this is where Bush claims that his performace in regards to Katrina was extraordinary.

No, you sanctimonious son of a bitch, your performance was not extraordinary. It was abyssmal. Your entire presidency has been so bad, so appallingly horrid, that the following image seems utterly correct:

You have been an unmitigated disaster for the United States and the world. Even your own spin-czars seem to have realised the full scale of this disaster in that, for the first time, you're finally taking responsibility for something. I must admit, I'm surprised and pleased. Maybe now you'll consider the evidence suggesting that your own policies contributed to this nightmare?

Nah, I doubt it.

Don't worry, though. We have some good advice for you.
