I am listening to Michael Chertoff making nothing but excuses for the planning that didn't go on before the hurricane. He's making me sick. His comments that they didn't anticipate the levee break are especially upsetting. He said the President declared a state of emergency before the storm hit - as if that was really doing the job. He suggested that "forces were put in motion" but he is not specific. What was actually on the move?

Mary called, said she and Marty have been unable to stay away from the news. They turn it off, then turn it on again. She has been having nightmares and is crying frequently. That reminds me of when I was a small child and we were just learning about radiation sickness. I had nightmares on top of nightmares then.

Another thing Chertoff did was to divert. He repeated how hard everyone is working, all the folks on the ground. I don't think anyone disputes that. What we dispute is that any real work was being done at the highest levels before this storm hit.
