My thoughts this memorialized weekend are with victims and their families all over the nation, both new and those of four years ago. But Mike Brown isn't one of them.

Black-and-blue Brown
Disaster point man has been beat up by jobs, friends say

WASHINGTON - As criticism of him grew this week, Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Mike Brown sent a candid e-mail to family and friends.

"I don't mind the negative press (well, actually, I do, but I try to ignore it) but it is really wearing out the family," Brown wrote. "No wonder people don't go into public service. This country is devouring itself, the 24-hour news cycle is numbing our ability to think for ourselves."

It is a shame more qualified people don't go into public service. Sadly, that has nothing to do with this man.
