I just watched both French and German news (I happen to also speak german...) and on both the reporters said they have been shocked by the presidential "show" in Biloxi earlier today, with helos and forces coming all at once when noone had been seen before, and specially in a place where there is no vital urgency, all people being out of what is left of the town...




This presidential show of "concern" has gotten to be standard proceedure in disaster. In reality, it is kind of shocking and I doubt many people are fooled by it but we'll see. I've never before seen people like Anderson Cooper (CNN) and the lead reporters on Fox (which usually supports the administration) and MSNBC snarling and screaming at the camera about the lack of coordinated, effective response. These folks are usually cool and collected but apparently a confrontation with death and violence has been enough to upend them.

Wish I could figure out how to get my keyboard to produce an umlaut (I think it's called) and in "Lander".
