In just 4 easy steps,:
- Step 1. Offer a place to stay to Katrina victims.
- Step 2. When none show up, fly them in.
- Step 3. Declare your town a disaster area, receive federal funds.
- Step 4. Profit!
Of course, as the article astutely points out. Many of us already knew Washington DC is a disaster area, and we’ve known it for quite some time.
Actually, I’m having a little trouble keeping up with my own bills lately, so if any Katrina victims want to live in a tent outside my lawn, I’m sure we can rough up the grass and make it look disaster-ish.
Update: What the hell is going on? A total of 28 states and DC have been approved by Bush to be declared “state of emergencies.” This seems quite peculiar. Is the entire USA going to become a state of emergency? And here I just put my tin foil hat away.
