The correct phrase to use to describe Brownie's new position is one the computer industry used during the down-sizing of the early-to-mid-90s~~~Brownie moved sideways, or was 'lateraled.' What a great way to use this football term, especially when you consider that a poorly thrown lateral that hits the ground is not an imcomplete pass, but a fumble. Perfectly describes Brownie.

Anyway, I have a roof leak near one of the dormers. I wonder if he would submit plans for its repair, or will I have to get up there over the weekend and do it myself.

Oy. Can I say Oy? I just wanted to say Oy

Maybe he's in training to be the new Michael Scanlon?

Michael Brown's consulting job to teach people how NOT to be like MICHAEL BROWN. Amazing! Is this a great country or What?

under communism in the soviet union, the government ran the businesses.

under capitalism in the united states, the businesses run the government.

the intermingling of the public and private spheres is one -- one -- thing that helps me think of the current administration, with bush as the dauphin and cardinal richelieu cheney as the true ruler, with the deepest and strongest feelings of scorn, if not outright anger and hatred.

besides that, i hope all who read lance's blog had a happy thanksgiving and will have a happy holiday -- whichever one you celebrate -- in december, and a happy healthy and prosperous 2006.

Indeed. His first seminar will be entitled: "DISASTER PREPAREDNESS FOR THE COMPANY THAT HAS AN IDIOT IN CHARGE OF DISASTER PREPAREDNESS: A PERSONAL LOVE STORY". Next: "AVOIDING INCRIMINATING EMAILS" Next: "FASHION TIPS FOR DISASTER PERSONNEL: LOOKING GOOD FOR ARMAGAEDDON".

Heh. I watched Brownie on “Frontline” the other night defending his record of piss-poor performance at FEMA. It was pretty laughable stuff for the most part. I think, as you quite rightly pointed out, most of it consisted of doling out money to Bush-friendly companies in the wake of disasters. An elaborate kick-back scheme predicated on human misery. I suppose that’s what passes for “compassionate conservatism” these days.

Perhaps Brown's corporate logo could be a bloated corpse floating forlornly down a flooded street. You know, working shots from his last big job.
