Just learned that FEMA has arranged fighter escort for the Broncos plane back to Denver.

Gave each player a handful of peanut butter cheese crackers packets and three half pints of milk.

Mike Brown has taken a lot of heat about New Orleans, but at least he is trying to get better.

Let us all pray that that plane lands in Denver with Plummer still allive.

ROFL If this means Brown is a donkey fan then I really do see Bush has no option...he must be fired.

Speaking of Miami, Mike Brown received a very-widely reported comment on his job performance from a Miami offical last weekend (see quote in boldface type below):

Head of FEMA has an unlikely background

By Matt Stearns and Seth Borenstein

WASHINGTON - From failed Republican congressional candidate to ousted "czar" of an Arabian horse association, there was little in Michael D. Brown's background to prepare him for the fury of Hurricane Katrina.


But as the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Brown now faces furious criticism of the federal response to the disaster that wiped out New Orleans and much of the Gulf Coast. He provoked some of it himself when he conceded that FEMA didn't know that thousands of refugees were trapped at New Orleans' convention center without food or water until officials heard it on the news.


"He's done a hell of a job, because I'm not aware of any Arabian horses being killed in this storm," said Kate Hale, former Miami-Dade emergency management chief. "The world that this man operated in and the focus of this work does not in any way translate to this. He does not have the experience."

Good one. ROFL

Looks like it was a swan song for Brown, but a glorious one indeed.

I saw some peanut butter cheese crackers at the store today, and was not tempted at all to buy any, I won't eat anything that is served at the Rocky Mountain Glue Farm.

Since the Broncos like former Browns, maybe this former FEMA director Brown can relieve Shanny of some of his GM responsibilities, the cleanup from tropical depression Maurice (Clarett) may be more manageable.
