Gov. Jeb Bush is heading for the disaster region. This is a good thing. Gov. Bush has plenty of experience with disasters, especially after the hurricanes this year in Florida.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Bush administration broadened its response to the earthquake and tsunami disaster in South Asia and Africa with plans for Secretary of State Colin Powell to visit the region and assess what more the United States needs to do.

"All Americans are shocked and saddened by the tragic loss of life and the destruction around the Indian Ocean," President Bush said in a statement read by White House deputy press secretary Trent Duffy in Crawford, Texas, on Thursday. Bush is on vacation there.

"To coordinate this massive relief effort, first-hand assessments are needed by individuals on the ground."

The president's brother, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who has experience with extensive hurricane damage in Florida, will travel with Powell.

Why do I get the feeling that Jeb's involvement is there to oversee
what happens to the relief funding and to keep an eye on Mr Powell?

A disturbingly large amount of the fund allocations for hurricane relief somehow managed to find thier way into Miami Dade County which was barely affected by the hurricanes while poorer regions remained poor.
