The Bush administration is evidently still trying to cut funds for agencies that provide hurricane protection. The only good thing about it is that even Republicans are starting to cry foul.


And the administration has dispatched 195 emergency workers armed with 47 vehicles, three huge field kitchens and portable emergency water treatment equipment sent as aid by our neighbors in Mexico -- to San Antonio, Texas, which has plenty of both. And they can't even tell us why! Seems they're playing their version of the "blame game" -- agencies pointing the finger at each other for an explanation of the decision.
