At lunch, WAFB reported that "unnamed sources" are saying that Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Michael Brown is being removed from his role managing Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. The Associated Press reports Brown is being sent back to Washington from Baton Rouge. He was the primary FEMA official overseeing the federal government's response to the disaster. It was not known if this is due to the mismanagement of the Hurricane Katrina response or yesterdays revelations that Brown lied about his resume. Brown is a Bush administration appointee with no previous experience in emergency management. Previously he was head of a horse show organization. Apparently he stated that he was a law school professsor on his resume when he was in fact a law student. This is what comes of appointing people based on their ideology or their campaign donations instead of their ability to do the job. According to a column in the morning advocate, Brown was quoted on the day of the hurricane as saying he "sent 1,000 people down there to make a good impression". To be more worried about an impression than addressing the problem reveals him to be a politician, not a professional.
