Another Grey Lady Moment

Today's NYT lead editorial once again frames our trauma for the nation. It is nice that they still care, that they believe in our future and are holding accountable the inaction. Here is a summation quotation:

"The new Democratic leaders in Congress also need to recognize that the many failures of Hurricane Katrina are more than just another reason to criticize the president. They need to quickly outline their own plans for salvaging New Orleans, so evacuees can once again call their city home.
That new Orleans remains a shattered city is a sad monument to impotence for the most powerful country in the world. Our grand plans were never laid, our brightest minds were never assembled, our nations' muscle and ingenuity were never brought to bear in an concerted way to overcome the crisis of the Gulf"
