Brown: Im the Victim

"Brown: Im the Victim"

The Rocky Mountain News obtained an email FEMA director Mike Brown sent to his friends last week. Thousands have died and a million people have been displaced but Brown complains that he’s a victim:

I don’t mind the negative press (well, actually, I do, but I try to ignore it) but it is really wearing out the family. No wonder people don’t go into public service. This country is devouring itself, the 24-hour news cycle is numbing our ability to think for ourselves.

The families who were stranded at the convention center and the Superdome without food, water or security had a lot more to worry about than negative press.
