Subject: RE: BS: Rush Limbaugh blames Katrina's victims
But thank god, there are some humane and decent conservatives speaking out. I saw David Brooks say the very same thing on the News Hour with Jim Lehrer on Friday night, as this BBC article quotes him as having written in his Sunday NYT column. I actually choked up when I heard Brooks say this on Friday night:

"The most artful supporter of the administration on the staff of the New York Times, columnist David Brooks, has also had enough.

He and others are calling the debacle the "anti 9-11": "The first rule of the social fabric - that in times of crisis you protect the vulnerable - was trampled," he wrote on Sunday.

"Leaving the poor in New Orleans was the moral equivalent of leaving the injured on the battlefield."
