This is a bit amusing to me. I think that quick evacuation must imediately be undertaken. This will save from us from the situation like the aftermath of katrina.

I realize it's time to worship Gen. Honore, but a couple of things bother me here. First, he got a lot of attention for saying "Stuck on stupid" and now it looks like he's going to trot it out like a kid who says something that makes people laugh and then you can't get him to shut up.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all in favor of having a tough, focused guy running things. But one problem with having a general in charge is that he's not used to people questioning him. If he doesn't want to dwell on what happened during Katrina while he's trying to deal with Rita, fine. But when a reporter says "when the people get on the buses where will they go?" and he says "None of your business," that's bullshit. It is our business. And you can belittle reporters all you want, but if they weren't asking questions, these guys would never tell us anything. I know a lot of guys love seeing the press bullied, but they're the only ones who get to ask these questions. Why should a public official be immune from providing information to the public?
