Krauthammer on New Orleans
By Mike Rappaport

Charles Krauthammer has another great column, this one on "Where to Point the Fingers." His attack on the left's reaction to this disaster is on the mark -- and devestating. The piece concludes:

Now is not the time for constructive suggestions. Now is the time for blame, recrimination and sheer astonishment. Mayor Ray Nagin has announced that, as bodies are still being found and as a public health catastrophe descends upon the city, he is sending 60 percent of his cops on city funds for a little R&R, mostly to Vegas hotels. Asked if it was appropriate to party in these circumstances, he responded: "New Orleans is a party town. Get over it."
