.....Given the incredible devastation in New Orleans, I admit my Katrina vanden Heuvel post was in bad taste.

But so is this N.Y. Times lead editorial:

"George W. Bush gave one of the worst speeches of his life yesterday, especially given the level of national distress and the need for consolation and wisdom......It would be some comfort to think that, as Mr. Bush cheerily announced, America 'will be a stronger place' for enduring the crisis. Complacency will no longer suffice, especially if experts are right in warning that global warming may increase the intensity of future hurricanes. But since this administration won't acknowledge that global warming exisits, the chances of leadership seem minimal."

Cheap shot, NYT. Right out of the liberal handbook. I don't know any better than to trivialize a grim situation. Smart guys and gals like you should.
