Is anyone minding the store?

There's been a strange silence since the New Orleans disaster. You don't hear much about or from our president. He's laying low. Strangely, nobody from the other party is beating up on him.

Things in the Republican party seem pretty much back to normal, what with Congress turning to making their tax cuts for the rich a permanent feature of our, um, "democracy." I guess they plan on giving the bill for all their follies to our children and their children.

Now that Michael Brown has taken the fall for the fuckup at FEMA, the media seems to have quieted down.

It feels like America's back on auto-pilot. That worries me because it means nobody's paying attention, nobody's minding the store.
