Bye-bye now

FEMA chief Michael Brown is being relieved of his duties overseeing Katrina relief, says MSNBC. He’s being replaced by an admiral. Oddly, it doesn’t seem he’s being relieved of his job. That’s as decisive as the White House is these days: half-acts.

: Sploid’s favorite Chertoff quote: “Brown has done everything he possibly could … ” Well, apparently so.

: I was waiting for Andrew Sullivan to dance a victory jig. I’m dancing, too.

But Brown is still in charge of keeping the rest of us safe. And that doesn’t make me feel safe at all.
