For those who’ve been following this weirdness, here’s
the White House statement on Federal Disaster Assistance due to Wilma.
Note that it’s surprisingly rational, covering the parts of Florida a
sane person would expect.
Compare and contrast with initially declaring only the non-coastal areas of Louisiana during Katrina, and then even more weirdly, the entire state of Texas
for Rita. (Note, incidentally, that the rest of Louisiana was
included, days later. Please don’t point to that and pretend it
explains the earlier weirdness.)
When my back’s not killing me, I still really do intend to post a full
review, complete with FEMA’s non-explanation. This is just a
place-holder for those interested in comparing Wilma.
