The rosy and the not so rosy

This morning I am leaning more towards a rosier view of the refusal to allow the Red Cross into New Orleans with supplies. If you remember, when supplies came into Iraq, at least in television 'reality' there was some chaos. Basically, I remember some television scenes of the supplies being hoarded by young men who were able to grab what they could. So it was cruel but necessary not to repeat that scene, but the federal and more local governments and the Red Cross wisely did not explain their full reasoning, because to do so would have irresponsibly associated the word 'rioting' with African Americans.

On the other hand, I don't think the Bushist Party is behaving as if it is too terribly terrified of losing the next election, only that it is 'terrified' of losing the support of its unfairly rich sponsors. This makes me very anxious. I'm still counting on a lot of narrow and 'surprising' Bushist 'victories' in 2006. I would really like to be proven way wrong about that. And what I'd really like is for an active news media -- and Patrick Fitzgerald -- to derail the whole diabolical coup plot, before Nov. 2006.
