FEMA - there are many words that come to mind when I hear that acronym. Helpful really isn't one of them.
I'm sure our Good Neighbors to the south in Dumas, Arkansas have some choice words to describe the federal agency as well. From the decision not to provide federal assistance to the South Arkansas families affected by recent storms in that area, to the ongoing FEMA trailer fiasco, to the Hurricane Katrina debacle, FEMA is a perfect example of our government at its worst.
Hopefully our state leadership in Little Rock and Washington will continue to push for reform is this dysfunctional organization.
