Yeah, Yeah, I Know

Sorry about the light posting the last couple of days. Like almost everyone else, I have more than a bit of Katrina overload, and there isn't all that much else out there.

One thing that's been bugging me is the whole thing about photographing the dead. No, it's not a matter of freedom of the press. It IS about decency. We know that people died... we don't need to see their bodies as proof.

The Blame Game is getting old. Michael Brown has been pulled from the rescue/recovery effort, and Vice Adm. Thad Allen is taking over. (I really don't think it was Brown's fault, but... someone's got to fall on the sword, right?) There will be plenty of time for figuring out what went wrong later. It doesn't have to be right now. There will plenty of commissions and investigations and who-know's-what-else. (Really, what they need to do is establish a bloggers' commission- I think some of the big guns have it researched and fact-checked already.)

To quote T1- " Enough with the finger pointing. Go do something." Dang, that kid's smart.
