KATRINA ON THE HUDSON: Angry New Yorkers say Obama pledge to cut red tape ignored by FEMA. “Some 1,000 people, many left homeless by the Oct. 29 storm, attended the meeting at Staten Island’s New Dorp High School. They were initially scheduled to submit written questions that would be picked and answered at random, but the session turned into an angry shouting match where residents booed FEMA officials and accused them of lying.”

Takeaway quote: “FEMA ain’t doing nothing.” This would be getting more, and different, coverage if we had a Republican in the White House.
