Reader No. 1 ponders post-Katrina ideas and rhetoric:
"1. That there is not much difference between 'compassionate conservatism' and Big Government Bureaucracy
. And given what is likely to happen with the Rebuilding of N'Awlins
, you ain't seen nothing yet.
"2. That there are heretofore unexplored local government angles to Katrina that no mainstream reporters will explore (too complicated / too embarassing to take a look into the sausage factory
)... again, as the site of the previously largest public works project in American History, Mass residents should watch and learn...
"3. That the most compassionate President in American history would throw shameless cheapshots
at his successor."
