"Does Anybody...Know Anything About Buses?!"

Speaking of media failure, Tom Maguire quotes what might go down in history as Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco’s most famous utterance:

Ms. Blanco burst into the state’s emergency center in Baton Rouge. “Does anybody in this building know anything about buses?” she recalled crying out.

Certainly no one in the New York Times’ building, Maguire observes.
