Brad, What became of the $15 processing fee Greyhound was
going to charge [people trying to make phone reservations to leave
Louisiana]? You said you were going to embarrass them. Tell all.
Attached is an e-mail that I have sent to the Red Cross. Do you have any other sources that I can contact to volunteer? I also have a number of friends in my profession that would like to volunteer as well and could pass this information on to them:
I have been a member of the International Arabian Horse Association
for many years. We hired Mike Brown as an independent view
not in the horse business to look over and be in charge of the
Judges that judge our competitions He got IAHA into such horrible
litigation that we nearly went broke … Google IAHA
Mike Brown and you will find some good stuff.
BLAME GAME TIED
Federal, Local Governments Deadlocked in Finger-pointing Contest
The ongoing blame game that began in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina is officially tied, as Federal and local governments have each dished out identical amounts of blame, the official scorekeeper of the blame game said today.
The scorekeeper, Karl Chanswood, is president of the National Blame Game Association, an organization that for the past forty years has promoted the blame game as a professional sport and hopes to see it included someday in the Olympics.
Mr. Chanswood said that in the current blame game, state and local governments pulled out to an early lead over the Federal government.
"Based on the early going, I would have guessed that the state and local governments had this particular blame game in the bag," Mr. Chanswood said.
But after initially stumbling, he said, the Federal government stepped up their finger-pointing and pulled into a dead heat with their state and local rivals.
"I have to hand it to the White House," Mr. Chanswood said. "They were way behind in this finger-pointing contest, but then they really brought their 'A' game."
At the White House, spokesman Scott McClellan brushed aside criticism that the White House responded too slowly to being blamed by state and local governments and should have started returning the blame much sooner.
Mr. McClellan pointed out that President Bush had recently authorized the release of the Strategic Blame Reserves, an emergency supply of blame that is used only in times of national crisis: "That's a sign of how seriously we take winning this blame game."
Elsewhere, after a new study showed that two-year-olds mimic their parents' smoking habits, singer Art Garfunkel's two-year-old was busted by police.
