Just got this email from John Pederson:
Bush ordered flags lowered 6 days after the tsunami for a period of 5 days.
It only took him 1 day to drop them after 9/11. 10 days.
We are now on day 6 of Katrina. His only proclomation this week is that it’s National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.
Today we’ll drop the flags out of respect. For William Rehquist. 10 days…according to the rules.
But you’ll find no proclamation on Katrina here.
: LATER: A proclamation has now been issued. [Thanks, Chancy]
