Of jazz legends and (mostly) useless governors

Fats Domino is missing. He has been extremely reclusive in recent years, and his neighborhood is underwater. No one knows where he is. God bless him, and we need to pray for his safety along with the safety of the 100,000 + still trapped in New Orleans.

And, for that matter, where the heck is Louisiana governor Kathleen Blanco? Governor Blanco (D., LA.) has been noticeable, in my humble opinion, by her absence.

Why did it take Governor Blanco (D., LA.) until 9-1 to order out Louisiana's National Guard when Katrina hit on 8-29 and the President ordered the national National Guard troops into action on 8-30 (and then ordered 10,000 more into action on 8-31)?

Why did Governor Blanco (D., LA.) not order troops to "shoot to kill" until 9-1, a full day after people began firing on military rescue aircraft in her state (yes, that's right, firing on their own rescuers, the same rescuers they're now complaining aren't there)? People are dying because looters are stealing medications and roaming in armed packs through hospitals, and yet Blanco didn't give any serious orders to attempt to stop the looting until yesterday, far too late to save dozens of lives. And yet, somehow, according to the liberal press, all of this is Bush's fault. Nobody else's, and certainly not the Democratic governor of Louisiana's fault!

Why is this entire disaster, and the supposed slowness of response, being laid at the feet of President Bush (R.)? Why has no blame attached itself to Governor Kathleen Blanco (D., LA.)?

I guess the answer is in the question...

To show Kathleen Blanco (D., LA.) how a governor is supposed to act in times of crisis, let's turn to the governor of my home state of Colorado, Bill Owens (R., CO.) who is sending 700 members of Colorado's National Guard to Louisiana today. Hmmm.... Now doesn't that just raise the question, once more, of why Governor Blanco (D.) didn't can't call up her own National Guard troops until September 1st., three full days after Katrina hit?
