Up in Smoke

Steve Gilliard points to this article in the Mirror, with appropriate commentary. Here's the lede:

"HUNDREDS of tons of British food aid shipped to America for starving Hurricane Katrina survivors is to be burned.
US red tape is stopping it from reaching hungry evacuees.
Instead tons of the badly needed Nato ration packs, the same as those eaten by British troops in Iraq, has been condemned as unfit for human consumption."

Trials by Water, and by Fire - Katrina survivors just can't catch a break, can they?

We are so dysfunctional Grisha. It makes me sad and enraged all at the same time. :(

Thanks, cougar - posts haven't been as frequent as I'd like lately, but hope that can change soon.

As for BG - it's the GUMMINT that's so dysfunctional - specifically this REPUB Gummint, I think it needs emphasizing - because they seem determined to either ignore or drive away (or punish, or fire...) anyone with ability, experience, competence or brains, and I know the country is full of such people. God, it's like being ruled by fucking robots, and stupid robots at that - when will our native bacteria kill them???
