The Other America... I know I said I'd leave it alone...

...But its MY blog, dammit, and I can reopen a dialogue if I feel like it. And I do.

Awesome Newsweek Article here:


For as long as this link is active, you can read this article that echoes what I've been saying in recent weeks. Namely that Hurrican Katrina, while catastrophic and heart breaking, was a necessary evil. She put a mangifying glass over issues that have been present in America that no one has wanted to talk about for quite some time. Well, they're talking about it now.

And since the "president's" approval ratings are so low, this would present an excellent opportunity for him to create more for his legacy than this useless war.(Oops, did I say "useless war" out loud? My bad. Damn this truth/venom spewing tounge of mine!) It would also save him from bearing the windfall of his mother's statement, made during her visit to the Houston Astrodome.

"So many of the people in the arenas here, you know, were underprivileged anyway. So this (living in the Astrodome with 10,000 of their closest friends) is working very well for them."

I'll give her the benefit of the doubt and attribute this statement to her impending senility-- unless she's just really that ignorant.

Just some friendly and free political advice for our "leader."
