Check this out. It’s a pdf file of Blanco’s executive order telling schools to get their buses into New Orleans to get people out of the city. It was issued on Aug. 31, at best (if she signed it at midnight) hours after the city flooded and that famous photo of the submerged buses started going around the web.
And the kicker, and you can find this on the Louisiana government website rather quickly, she amended the order on Sept. 2 to make sure that everyone driving the buses has a drivers’ license. That’s very important, I guess.
