We've heard an awful lot of blame-shifting and political grandstanding in the wake of the devastation caused by hurricane Katrina. Now, the FEMA chief, who was getting bad marks from an awful lot of folks, has been recalled to Washington. But who deserves the blame for the destruction and the difficulty of dealing with the problems it caused, especially the mess in New Orleans? Local officials? State government? The Feds? What about Mother Nature, or the people who refused to evacuate?
Does assigning blame now make sense? How well should we expect to be able to handle a disaster on this scale?
