CNN Masochism

I don’t know why I do it (maybe because they’re only game in town) but listening to CNN during the Katrina crisis continues to be a gruesome experience. We hear a litany of criticism of the administration and everybody else involved in the rescue program, but barely one single concrete suggestion about how things could be done better. It’s like attending a Conclave of the Fatuous. Notable among them this morning Kyoto time – Ron Brownstein of the LATimes.
