“Our investigation revealed that Katrina was a national failure, an abdication of the most solemn obligation to provide for the common welfare. At every level — individual, corporate, philanthropic and governmental — we failed to meet the challenge that was Katrina. In this cautionary tale, all the little pigs built houses of straw.”

I can’t wait to get my hands on the report, “Failure of Initiative,” this week.
This story on Brown as a scapegoat is also sure to be helpful in my work this semester too.
