"Now is not the time..."
When the time comes to place blame, whenever that mythical date arrives, someone should take a good hard look at the people who made this decision:
"The state Homeland Security Department had requested--and continues to request--that the American Red Cross not come back into New Orleans following the hurricane. Our presence would keep people from evacuating and encourage others to come into the city. "The policy wonks who engineered this little bit of brilliance, at the state and/or federal level, have the blood on their hands of all those who died from dehydration or lack of medical attention in front of the convention center and elsewhere this last week.
