Lameness aside, what exactly is the point of "FEMA for kids?" Why would any kid be interested in FEMA anyway? Is the idea for schools to teach students about different government departments so this is an educational tool?

It almost seems sort of antithetical to the right's current approach to government, which is "ignore it and maybe it'll go away". Why, then, try to get kids interested in FEMA? Wouldn't it be better if they grow up to be voters without any affection for FEMA?

Or maybe it's a sinister ploy to make kids think government is just lame. Like you outgrow government the way you outgrow Sesame Street. Hmmm...

The National Security Agency has a "kids" section on their website as well.

I sorta figured it was supposed to be a type of safety campaign like teaching kids to stop, drop, and roll, or having earthquake drills. Only, like everything about FEMA lately, lame and vastly ineffective to the point of being criminaly incompetent.

It sort of reminds me of the PSA parodies on RENO 911.

Some others just from today and yesterday, for instance; a couple hundred more behind those in the past few days.

On treating the deceased with dignity.

Vibrio vulnificus deaths.

Cautious words from Brian Williams on the military approach in the disaster zone; also, puppy love.

Today's huge solar flare will interfere with rescue communications. Few seem to have noticed this.

The National Press Association reaction.

Who is a "refugee"?

Customs is distributing seized goods to evacuees; and how Wisconsin got buses to Louisiana.

The Laura Rozen German ZDF report appears to be wrong.

Detained in an Oklahoma FEMA camp for five months?

Who couldn't wait for Katrina scams?

Also: the firefighters are still in Atlanta, playing cards.

Evacuees barred by housing covenant; how lovely of the homeowners association to remind everyone.

Yahoo cooperates with Chinese state security.

Disaster numbers squishy; Kanye's followup; making fun of Barbara Bush's silver foot.

Joint Katrina hearings settled on.

Nerves in Baton Rouge.

More blame game.

On the lighter, smaller, side, Apples ROKR and Ipod-nano.

Brownie's deputies at FEMA.

They're not normal.

That overseas aid.

Also: that time gap of Brownie's.

Rewarding helo pilots. Not.

See no evil; no photos allowed.

The water; Broussard quote.

No forced removals yet.

Just get on the plane.

Resettlement.

Send those trucks somewhere.

The real story.

Attacking stegosaurus, or at least a wild boar.

We're from the Republican Party and we're here to help you with your bankruptcy.

The $2k debit card plan.

The dirty blue line.

Corpsicles.

Brownie's five hour gap.

1000 trained Potemkin firefighters.

Don't tell them they're going to Utah.

The ugly rumors.

Let's politicize now.

The real disaster.

And so on and so forth and so on.
