Yet another weird SF fan


I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Were the Delays in the Hurricane Rescue Effort Unprecedented?

There were similar complaints after Hurricane Andrew.

By the way, how effective were the rescue efforts (seen via Radagast)? Those claims look like they came from the sort of press releases that were present this time and appropriately ridiculed this time.

Bush a.k.a. "Mr compassionate conservative" probably thinks that these “humid Louisiana gumbo-eaters” are just decadent descendents of Gallic “cheese-eating-surrender-monkeys”: why spend federal money helping them when you can redirect public resources to far more useful goals- such as the carpet bombing of Iraqi towns and villages…

Meanwhile, as Louisiana is left to drown, US ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad has reiterated his outlandish statement of last week, calling the Iranian-inspired Iraqi constitution “the most progressive document of the Muslim world”

I guess it depends on your definition of “progress”

Thanks to Bush and his neocon friends it will now be legal to stone women to death for adultery, Christians will be required to pay a specific tax (called “Jizya” or fiscal punishment), and cafes across Iraq will only serve lemonade and milk shake…

Good job Dubya!
