I don’t get why FEMA is evidently so unprepared and why, after 9/11, there appears to be no extant plan in the federal government for dealing with law and order in a city in a state of catastrophic meltodown. The problem is that when a crisis hits, people have to react immediately, but things seem to have moved in weird slow motion yesterday and today.

He dreamed of socialism but feared socialists. He feared them because he knew them. I was in the sixth grade in 1984, but I ... Read More
