Bye Bye, Brownie
FEMA Director and Undersecretary of Homeland Security Michael Brown has been relieved of his on-the-ground duties in the Katrina relief effort.
What other significant duties he has, I'm not sure. In any event, a Coast Guard admiral will be taking over the recovery efforts.
Meanwhile, Mardi Gras Inc. in St. Louis is having a benefit for the relief effort this Sunday, September 11th. Called the Bourbon Street Benefit, it's $20 at the door, at the Casa Loma Ballroom, Cherokee and Iowa in beautiful Benton Park West!
