Just less than a year ago, a report on how, inexplicably, Louisana failed to get disaster preparedness money under Bush Administration criteria:

The Federal Emergency Management Agency shook up its way of distributing disaster preparedness money when it introduced its Pre-Disaster Mitigation (PDM) grant program in 2002. Given the program's criteria, Louisiana appeared to have been a shoo-in for federal dollars for 2003, the first year the program began awarding money. Instead, Louisiana got nothing.
Be prepared. Sigh. I guess noone ever claimed that W. was a boy scout....
