If That Doesn't Beat All

This story seems to capture the decadent nature of Louisiana government in a nutshell: the city of New Orleans asked FEMA to pay for 5-day vacations in Vegas for the entire police department. Now.

FEMA turned them down. The city of New Orleans will pay for the trips instead -- sending the officers now, while people from all over the country continue to labor in the city.

There hasn't been much to say in the last few days -- everything else took a backseat to absorbing the overwhelming devastation of Hurricane Katrina.
