David Duke is not the reason Katrina hit Louisiana. There is no "reason" why, except those having to do with complex weather patterns. It was a hurricane. Hurricanes happen. They happen all over the world.

Louisiana politics are strange and wonderful. The slogan "Vote for the crook. It's important" (from the Edwards/Duke contest) may go down in history as one of the oddest of all time.

An interesting talk from 10/5/06 by William Daugherty on BookTV today. His book Executive secrets: Covert Action and the Presidency details the rise of a new 'thought police' within the government.
He mentioned how new provisions in the Freedom of Information Act require the REQUISTOR to show a "reason" for the request, which creates a Catch-22 if they don't have access to the documents in the first place. He also detailed the campaign to re-classify documents that were previously in the public domain (such as how many B-52 squadrons were active in 1970); at a taxpayer cost of over $3000/ page. Finally, while Mr. Daughtery had left the Intellegence comminty, his remaining sources suggested that the CIA under Porter Goss was a over-politicized disaster.
