Heck Of A Job

Former FEMA administrator turned talk radio host, Michael Brown, in New Orleans to host his show for the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina:

“Put yourself in my shoes…you’ve just come out of a meeting where you’ve just told your boss that nothing’s working, I can’t make stuff happen, state and local government aren’t doing what they need to do, the federal government isn’t doing what it needs to do, things are bad. And he comes out and tells me I’m doing a heck of a job?”

Brown has a lot to say. Romenesko quotes this from an interview in Denver’s Westword:

“I have one book that’s in print now, a second book that I’m starting to work on already, I still speak around the world, I have clients around the country, I have a company here in Denver, I have two grandkids. What’s the problem?”

It looks like Deadly Indifference is the one he says is “in print” now. He’ll also be in an upcoming HBO documentary on Katrina by director Spike Lee.
