Message: I'm In Charge

FEMA Chief Michael Brown is leaving to spend some more time with his family/the horses/people who like him. He'll be replaced by Thad Allen, the Coast Guard Vice Admiral who's been overseeing Katrina relief efforts.

Notice also how invisible Chertoff has become. Since Bush clearly doesn't know the extent of the disaster that DHS has become, one wonders if someone who can openly talk to Bush is preparing him to think about what would happen if an actual 'homeland security' issue would pop up unannounced.

I expect within a couple weeks we'll see Brown leaving DHS/FEMA to join Joe Albaugh's feeding at the pig trough of $60 billion in FEMA funds that will likely be fed to Bush cronies.

Chertoff was rewarded for his staring role in the Clinton impeachment and has the same deer-in-the-headlights stare that Brown has shown. This is Bush's real vulnerability. Lawyers don't make very good bureaucrats and leaders, and Chertoff is the poster-boy for government-suckling DC lawyers.

No, firing him would be admitting Bush made a mistake. Note that he's not leaving FEMA, just the Katrina efforts- the excuse? Hurricane season isn't over, so he needs to be in charge of any future disasters. I fell safer already.

Is it me, or does this article not say that Brown has been fired? It says he's not managing relief duties, but that doesn't mean he isn't still nominally FEMA director, and collecting a government paycheck.

Sorta like the Peter Principle. Promote past a person's level of competence - twice.

Seriously, what do you have to do to get fired in the Bush administration besides tell the truth?

Identify theft is becomeing more and more problomatic with people. Students are at a hight risk. Many students have not checked their credit reports and have no idea what is on them. Many of the colleges have changed to remove the SSN from their college ID's; however, many still use them. All you need is a name and a SSN and you are on your way to getting a credit card or a loan. So if there are any students out there check your credit reports carefully and BE CAREFUL,
