While others get Christmas dinner with Bush, this is what our elected representatives have to do to get his attention

The Advocate: "With the backdrop of two tents flapping in the bitter cold, Democratic members of a special House committee investigating the Hurricane Katrina aftermath lashed out at the Bush administration Tuesday for what they called its sluggish response.

U.S. Rep. Charlie Melancon, D-Napoleonville, and U.S. Rep. Gene Taylor, D-Miss., said evacuees in their districts are still living in tents more than 100 days since the hurricane.

'I'm at a point where I didn't think I'd have to be standing here begging for help for our own people,' Melancon said."
