Sinful Omission

In case you missed it, Bob Harris gives us the map of the parishes named in GWB's pre-Katrina declaration of emergency.

He's been digging and updating, but apparently still has yet to find any suitable explanations for the fact that the coastline parishes are totally ABSENT from the declarations.



Pay him a visit & watch developments as they arise.

Declaration for the other Parishes was done on the 23rd. As much as I would love to push that up in the face of the White House, the funding had been put into place four days prior to the aforementioned link denotes for the Parishes not mentioned on the 27th.

Yes and no. The WH / Fema 8/23 declaration only mentions 5 parishes. Those ommitted from the Katrina-related declaration are considerably more.
