Those missing helicopters

Michael Moore fires off an open letter to George W. Bush. Moore is always worth a read as he’s mastered the knack of making political dissent relevant, timely and populist:

“Mr. Bush, you just stay the course. It’s not your fault that 30 percent of New Orleans lives in poverty or that tens of thousands had no transportation to get out of town. C’mon, they’re black! I mean, it’s not like this happened to Kennebunkport. Can you imagine leaving white people on their roofs for five days? Don’t make me laugh! Race has nothing – NOTHING – to do with this!”
