remember the Gulf Coast!

I know I'm posting a lot of videos these days (it's easier than writing long pieces on the state of American democracy that no one has time to read or respond to, ahem), but this one is important. NBC did a great piece on President Bush's trip to the region (in which he lectured local leaders: "It may be hard for you to see, but from when I first came here to today, New Orleans is reminding me of the city I used to come to visit" and told them "it's a heck of a place") and the process of rebuilding as it applies to class. Yes, that's right, the issue of CLASS being dealt with seriously on national television. Watch it, and don't forget the Gulf Coast!

VIDEO: wmp and quicktime.

Delusional is spelled with an "e" not an "i". Also, I'm pretty sure it wasn't a "delusional" trip in that it's clear that the President actually went there. Whether you think his conclusions or delusional or not. :-)

Yeah, sorry about that. I wrote the post very quickly so my spelling and adjective use were both sloppy. Any thoughts on the actual events or the substance of the points made?
