FEMA E-Mails

The obvious highlights (full versions of the snippets posted yesterday)...

Email 1
From: Worthy, Sharon []
Sent: Wednesday. August 31, 2005 2:00 PM
To: 'Valerie.Smith@DHS.GOV'
Cc: ''; Andrews, Nicol D - Public Affairs; ''
Subject: Scarborough

Please schedule Joe Scarborough this eveninq for 9pmCST period. Spoke with his producer and told him to call you. Mr. Brown wants to do this one.

Also, it is very important that time is allowed for Mr. Brown to eat dinner. Gievn that Baton Rouge is back to normal, restaurants are getting busy. He needs much more that 20 or 30 minutes. We now have traffic to encounter to get to and from a location of his choise, followed by wait service from the restaurant staff, eating, etc. Thank you.

OH MY GOD!!!!!!!! No won't go any further, too easy of a target. Just tell her that I just ate an MRE and crapped in the hallway of the Superdome along wirh 30,000 other close friends so I understand her concern about busy retaurants. Maybe tonight I will have time to move the pebbles on the parking garage floor so they don't stab me in the back while I try to sleep, but instaed I will hope her wait at Ruth Christ is short. But I know she is stressed so I won't make a big deal about it and you shouldn't either.

And lest we forget...
"I want to thank you all for -- and, Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job. The FEMA Director is working 24 -- (applause) -- they're working 24 hours a day."
-President George W. Bush (September 2, 2005)

Yes, Mr. President, sounds like your boy Brownie was working non-stop.

By the way- Mr. Brown is still on the FEMA payroll. Our tax dollars at work.
