Speaking out!

As the House and the Senate urge us all not to go placing blame for the untold deaths in New Orleans, I've been impressed by a few public figures who are willing to point fingers - notably Jon Stewart on the Daily Show, who played a clip of GW on Good Morning America saying, "I don't think anybody anticipated the breach of the levees." (Sept. 1) Of course, many, many people anticipated not just a breach, but the total destruction of the levees - unfortunately not Michael D. Brown, head of FEMA, who Bush said was doing "a heck of a job." Check out Kanye West saying it like it is during the Concert for Hurricane Relief and Celine Dion on Larry King (scroll down, it's on the right). These celebrities are generally described as "losing it" or "getting emotional" during their impassioned pleas, but if you ask me, it's well past time to get friggin' emotional about the situation!
