Jefferson v. Brown. Who has the facts?

Jefferson told Brown that Blanco's mandatory evacuation order went out on Sunday, Aug. 28, the same day that Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour ordered a mandatory evacuation of his state's coastal counties.

"They were made at about the same time," he said. "Are you saying that FEMA did everything right in Mississippi and Alabama and only Louisiana had problems."
What a liar. The FEMA plan for evacuation did not take the poor into account. There was plenty of time to get out, but no resources for the poor. Evacuation was complete by Sunday night. Except for the residents of the Ninth Ward. Get that straight, Brownie. Heckuva job, btw.
