ENV: Playing with hurricanes . . .

Okay, read the caption to this photo:
Cindy Wieczorek watches wind and rain buffet her trailer just after sunrise on
Monday. Wieczorek lives in a FEMA trailer park that houses residents of Port
Charlotte and Punta Gorda who were displaced by Hurricane Charley in 2004.

Now, follow this with me. FEMA is still housing evacuees from a hurricane a year ago, and is housing them in trailers, and is housing them in trailers smack dab in the middle of hurricaneland. Someone shut that agency down, or put tool-using gorillas in charge. If there was ever a poster-child for bureaucracy this has to be it.
