AP: Astounding! Texas getting the same FEBAR treatment

Port Arthur Mayor Oscar Ortiz, whose own home was destroyed by fire after the hurricane, said "we've had 101 promises" for aid, "but it's all bureaucracy." He and other officials gathered at a hotel-turned-command center, where a dirty American flag found among hurricane debris was hung on the wall.

John Owens, emergency management coordinator and deputy police chief in the town of 57,000, said pleas for state and federal relief were met with requests for paperwork.
This is precisely the same story as we heard over and over and over in Louisiana. FEMA is dysfunctional, not Louisiana, and not Texas. It's Bush cronyism at work.
