Brownie Back To The Big Easy

I am sensing a pattern. First, they completely screw things up. Then they move into the private sector and get hired, at a pretty penny, to go back and fix it. Not everyone is thrilled about it.

(AP)Hurricane-ravaged St. Bernard Parish is considering hiring former FEMA chief Michael Brown to advise its hurricane recovery effort, a move drawing sharp complaints from a state lawmaker.

City Council President Oliver Thomas told CNN Wednesday, he wishes Brown and the other parishes well but quoted a line from what he said had become a school children's poem.

"In New Orleans, we're not down with Michael Brown, we were glad when he left town," he said.
