My quotes of the day

From the Washington Post article Wild Card of Musical Chairs by Al Kamen, Friday, September 9, 2005:

Brown, formerly FEMA general counsel and a longtime head of the International Arabian Horse Association, is under vicious, even bipartisan, attack for being in over his head. He’s being blamed for all manner of miscues — our favorite was for the plane Tuesday with New Orleans evacuees that landed in Charleston, W.Va., instead of Charleston, S.C.

Having lived just outside of Charleston, WV and visited on many occasions Charleston, SC, I’d say there’s a bit of difference…I just hope that they eventually got to the right Charleston…

What does FEMA stand for again?

On the homefront, seems we’re cracking down on Porn instead of the “turr-ists” nowadays…

From Recruits Sought for Porn Squad by Barton Gellman, Washington Post Staff Writer, Tuesday, September 20, 2005:

Early last month, the bureau’s Washington Field Office began recruiting for a new anti-obscenity squad. Attached to the job posting was a July 29 Electronic Communication from FBI headquarters to all 56 field offices, describing the initiative as “one of the top priorities” of Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales and, by extension, of “the Director.” That would be FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III.

“I guess this means we’ve won the war on terror,” said one exasperated FBI agent, speaking on the condition of anonymity because poking fun at headquarters is not regarded as career-enhancing. “We must not need any more resources for espionage.”
