"I'm from the government, and I'm here to help you!"

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, there have been calls for a "hurricane czar" or a "disaster czar."

What we really need is a new federal Crisis Department. Under this department, there would be a hurricane czar, a tornado czar, an earthquake czar, a flood czar, a drought czar, a forest fire czar, a power blackout czar, a pestilence czar, an obesity czar, a famine czar, a locust czar, a love bug czar ...ad nauseam.

What we really need is for people to start taking responsibility for their own lives and bad decisions. It is rather foolish to build below sea level, or anywhere near it, along the coast in hurricane alley. Even more foolish is to not evacute yourself when the big one is bearing down on you. Even dumber is to rebuilt. Perhaps Rita is the dropping of the second shoe. Unfortunately, I doubt people are going to get the message.
