Well done, Adrastos. Just remember, you must only use your power for good (kinda like this time).

At the risk of bragging like Kaiser Ed, I did suggest a followup to Kevin. I'm sure he would have done so anyway...

Could be a little of both. One thing I found out easily and quickly on your previous post is that after Katrina, Blakely at his own expense, from Australia, lobbied with NOLA to create the post and put him in it.

Talk about cows feeding from the govt trough (plus Heck of Job Brownie using his experience to be a professional disaster relief company and political commentator).

Either way, bet the Univ of Australia administration is quite POed at being drug into the circus.

Off topic but interesting about NY, NY disaster relief.

Remember how Bloomberg made a point at a political stab by refusing federal help ?

Well, he is now going to congress for increased govt disaster funds.
