(AHN) - A report on Fox News from correspondent Major Garrett Wednesday night reveals a major break into what exactly went wrong at the Louisiana Superdome in the days after Hurricane Katrina struck the city. An American Red Cross representative tells Fox News that the Louisiana State Homeland Security Department refused the relief organization permission to take food and water to the Superdome because they did not want to 'encourage people to go there.'

    Do you think Bush is right in saying the administration will conduct an investigation? Should Congress? Also, what's your opinion of Brown? Was he qualified to do the job? Finally, are you bothered by Barabra Bush's comment about the people at the Dome?

    As my husband said: "If I were ever president, I would hate to have to deal with the press making a big deal out
    of every crazy thing that my mom ever said."

    This is even funnier if you know my mother-in-law.

    Hi Dave!

    I think that if an investigation is done the finger will point right at Congress, the Lousiana governor and New Orleans mayor.

    Also, I have no idea about Brown. As I told Kathy, I have worked with FEMA before and it was always a bureaucratic mess, but then again that speaks for every administrative agency out there. I do think that Brown was judged and executed by the American public and possibly the Administration before all the facts are out. Also in terms of qualifications I have rarely met administrative appointments who were qualified for their jobs--in any administration.

    Barbara Bush--nah, no more so than the often elitist comments made by any of the politicos. BB is an old woman and I'm willing to cut her as much slack as I did Walter Crokite when his dementia finally began to set in.

    Thanks for stopping by, Dave! Always enjoy the points you raise and the questions you ask.


    P.S. When you get a chance check out Kathy's 'blog. She often has some very interesting posts. She has helped me be a little more "environmentally friendly".

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
