Katrina Timeline

While certainly somewhat partisian, the following linked timeline is a useful addendum to the discussion of guilt and responsibility.  For the record, my current opinion is that the Governor of Louisiana, as intermediary between the local and Federal levels, might well bear the brunt of responsibility.  Time will tell exactly when she requested help, and what the Federal response was.  I also want to know what idiot approved a "drive-away" evacuation plan without asking what percentage of the population had no cars.  If heads don't roll over this tragedy, I want to know what they're saving the axe for.
