FEMA Chief Brown Resigns

Michael Brown, FEMA’s battered and bruised director, is resigning according to published news reports. It was the right decision — and it also saves President Bush the embarrassment of firing Brown instead (though I wouldn’t be suprised if Bush encouraged Brown to step down).

Brown is the first and not likely the last to go in the bungled Katrina aftermath, at all levels of government. Was Brown’s departure at least partly the media’s fault? Perhaps — and to that I say God bless the media.
