And Lite-Jazz Singers Shall Lead the Way?

Finally, government help got into New Orleans over the weekend. Real heroic—-except that Harry Connick Jr. managed to get down and bring some aid with him last THURSDAY.

"How hard is it to take a helicopter or a truck ... it's easy to get to the convention center, we got there with no problem ... how hard is it to take a truck with water or food for these people. I don't understand,” Connick said in "Today Interview.

If a pop singer can mosey on down to the Big Easy—which, last time I checked, had not broken off from the United States and shot across the Atlantic Ocean—why can’t the biggest, bestest country in the world? What on earth were FEMA and the U.S. government doing last week? On Sunday, New Orleans’ paper the Times-Picayune ran an open letter to Bush stating that “Every official at the Federal Emergency Management Agency should be fired, Director Michael Brown especially.” I can't say that I disagree, although I'd leave the FEMA interns.

Wrap-up: Do the needful here or here or wherever you like.

PS, the photo used above is of Harry Connick Jr. in his role as “Bacchus XXV” in the 1993 Mari Gras parade. Sad people in need of a giggle can click here and especially here.

That's just disturbing. Harry Connick? If ever there's been an instance of "bad craziness," this takes the cake.
