This Picture Especial For The Duck
Mr. Ducky, these are school buses that failed to move an inch to get people out of harms way. Never mind FEMA, the Federal government and President Bush. New Orleans government failed their citizens miserably. Below is a picture of Mayor Nagin who is now calling for the Feds to 'Get off your asses'.
".....need reinforcements, I need troops, man. I need 500 buses, man. We ain't talking about -- you know, one of the briefings we had, they were talking about getting public school bus drivers to come down here and bus people out here." --Ray Nagin, Mayor of New Orleans
Notice his repetitive use of the word man. He is quoted as telling the President, "I need everything." I think I am beginning to understand why the buses didn't move. The actions of the New Orleans defenders of public law and order is a whole 'nother story. Here's a little pearl of wisdom from former Drill Sergeant Big Bubba to upper management of the New Orleans police force - "the maximum effective range of an excuse is 0 meters." Your folks broke ranks and ran. No excuse. period.
