i've seen right-wing blogs diss this story and denounce it as lies, because it was published on a socialist website.

guess what? here's confirmation:

Gretna Police Chief Arthur Lawson confirmed that his officers were under his orders to seal off the suburban city of 17,500 residents.

don't like the SF chronicle? how about that well-known liberal rag, the washington times?

michael brown removed from hurricane relief efforts.

not quite fired yet. but apparently bush doesn't have full and complete confidence in him after all, despite all brown's waffling about how the press blames him, but not the president.

hey, michael! not just the press blames you, you know! millions of people do too. now fuck off, you incompetent nitwit. hope you enjoy your mexican meal -- it's nice not to be in a FEMA detention camp, isn't it.

the cost of cronyism, the washington post does research.

FEMA's top three leaders -- Director Michael D. Brown, Chief of Staff Patrick J. Rhode and Deputy Chief of Staff Brooks D. Altshuler -- arrived with ties to President Bush's 2000 campaign or to the White House advance operation, according to the agency. Two other senior operational jobs are filled by a former Republican lieutenant governor of Nebraska and a U.S. Chamber of Commerce official who was once a political operative.
