Equal-Opportunity Incompetence: FEMA After Ike
Hurricanes are big storms. In 2005 a big storm hit the Gulf Coast, followed shortly thereafter by a second storm, nearly as big, that hit a bit further West. Katrina trashed the Gulf Coast, and Rita extended the damage. Three years plus thereafter, the mother of all Cat-2 'Canes hit Galveston Island -- and two months later Texans are still waiting on Bush's Federal Emergency Management Agency.
"It's unfortunate we can't drop houses overnight on people who need them," FEMA spokesman Simon Chabel said.
