Flippant much?

The day Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, then-FEMA director Michael Brown e-mailed a FEMA official to ask, "Can I quit now? Can I come home?"

A few days later, as tens of thousands of Americans were stranded in their homes or shelters or were left homeless on the streets of New Orleans and elsewhere without food or clean water, Brown e-mailed an acquaintance with the following: "I'm trapped now, please rescue me."

A heck of a job indeed.
