Moving in the right direction

Have we finally seen the end of Michael Brown?

And some real good news from PETA

September 9, 2005, 7 p.m.: Lt. Gen. Honore’s Staff to Facilitate Companion-Animal Rescues
    In a victory for animals left in harm's way by Katrina and some officials, Lt. Gen. Russel Honore, commander of the First U.S. Army and the official in charge in New Orleans—who PETA asked on September 6 to allow animals to be evacuated with their families—announced this afternoon in a press conference that as his agents evacuate the city's remaining human residents, rescue personnel will have animal carriers to facilitate evacuating cats and dogs as well!

Earlier: No Pets

Gen. Honore was the guy Mayor Nagin cited in his plea for help on September 1st as the only competent person the federal government had sent to New Orleans. On the other hand, Honore was also the guy who instituted a "zero access" policy preventing the media from covering the recovery of bodies in New Orleans. The order went into effect yesterday (Friday 9/9) but was blocked by a federal judge the same day. Where the "zero access" order ultimately came from is not clear.

PETA is running a good ad denouncing FEMA in the Washington Post today.
