Two days after Katrina hit, Marty Bahamonde, one of the only FEMA employees in New Orleans, wrote to Brown that “the situation is past critical” and listed problems including many people near death and food and water running out at the Superdome.

Brown’s entire response was: “Thanks for the update. Anything specific I need to do or tweak?”

…Brown is still on the federal payroll at his $148,000 annual salary.

CNN, ‘Can I quit now?’ FEMA chief wrote as Katrina raged. E-mails give insight into Brown’s leadership, attitude. Thursday, November 3, 2005 Posted: 2044 GMT

(Yes, it’s true, I’ve quoted CNN. It wasn’t easy, believe me.)
