OK, the rescue efforts are largely successful, the death toll appears to be significantly below the 10,000 pitched by Mayor Nagin, and since the Liberals have had their predictable flurry of attempts to pin yet another act of Nature on President Bush, it seems to me that we have finally reached the point where we can start talking about who bears the bulk of the responsibility for this disaster in New Orleans.
Bearing in mind, as always, that we are talking about an unforeseen natural disaster.
Fortunately, there has ben a great deal of information presented on the timeline and responsibilities. And in reading those documents, I have found a candidate who appears far more culpable than anyone else. Here are some hints:
 It's not President Bush
 It's not anyone named Clinton
 It's not FEMA Director Michael Brown
 It's not Louisiana Governor "Quick Decision" Blanco
 It's not even Mayor "Calm Under Pressure" Nagin
The last two, especially, have their own responsibilities to be sure, but I found someone whose duties, as specified in the stautes in place when Katrina made landfall, makes their burden the heaviest.
I wonder who else might know the person I mean?
More to come...
