Ten-Foot Poll on School Zones---RESULT
posted 950a-955p Mon 9/12/2005
Should school zone speed limits be changed to apply ONLY when children are present?
Yes. Slowing down when school is still in session is stupid.
No. Maybe a driver would run over an unseen child.

'You'll Never Take Me Alive,' says shotgun-wielding Brown

A tense standoff continued in Washington, D.C. today as Federal Emergency Management Agency head Michael Brown refused to be evacuated from his office at FEMA headquarters.

The White House made the call to evacuate Mr. Brown from his office after it decided that his decision to remain there posed a threat to everyone in the Gulf region.

Agents from the Department of Homeland Security first approached Mr. Brown's office over the weekend, urging him to evacuate and offering to help him empty out his desk and pack up his files.

"We offered to move him to another office far away from the FEMA building, where he could do no harm," said Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. "We told him that he would have a nice desk, a telephone and a secretary, and that he could spend all day rewriting his resume."

The Homeland Security agents had hoped that the evacuation of the FEMA chief would proceed without incident, but instead of an agreeable team player, the Michael Brown they encountered was a shotgun-wielding madman who doggedly refused to budge.

"You bastards!" shrieked a visibly unhinged Mr. Brown. "You'll never take me alive!"

As the standoff moved into its third day, Mr. Brown told reporters that he had enough food and water to remain in his office for another six months and that it was unfair to evacuate him after "only one major screw-up."

"They would never do this to Rumsfeld," he said.

Elsewhere, climatologists said today that President Bush's approval rating is now below sea level and should remain there for at least three years.

IT help

I appreciate all your efforts to help during this natural disaster and displacement of people. ..
The Red Cross is now looking for volunteers with computer skills.
A group of us met yesterday to establish the IT centers for the victims of Katrina and are now looking for people with data entry skills, basic application skills and technical skills. If any of your viewers are interested in assisting with these functions I ask that they visit (created with the help of local company Rackspace) to assist in this effort.

Poll suggests Bush could be Katrina’s next casualty
52 percent, say they do not trust the president “to make the right decisions during a domestic crisis” (45 percent do). The numbers are exactly the same when the subject is trust of the president to make the right decisions during an international crisis.
