Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., said FEMA needs to be stripped out of the larger department and restored to an independent Cabinet-level agency. "That's how it was done in the past and it worked as we hoped," said Lautenberg, a member of the Senate panel.
So let's try a novel approach, say, oh I don't know, Fix It? Can't the chain of command for FEMA be rerouted as proposed? Can't the reorganization be better outfitted to an existing structure? Do we really need to throw away all that stationary? Are we really better served trashing those nifty T-shirts, windbreakers, clipboards, and pens, not to mention those swell plastic name badges that hang from a lanyard? And what about the Website? Should we just go out and pay the same guys who posted the FEMA site to copy and paste their work with a few new NPRA logos? Wait!! That's already taken by the National Pro Rodeo Association! What will we do now! Time to have a new Oversight Committee look into this one's apparent trademark infringement!
I better stop while I'm ahead; I am ahead aren't I?
