It's FEMA's fault

Times Pic reports SecState Ater has recommended the elections in New Orleans be postponed. It already looks bad enough that Mardi Gras can somehow proceed in February while elections cannot. But now it’s apparently FEMA’s fault. Here's a line from the article:

"Our job would have been a lot easier if FEMA had been more forthright and more forthcoming," Ater said.
This helps explain why Mark Twain is fast becoming my favorite source of quotes concerning Louisiana’s post-hurricane environment. "It's no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense." -- Mark Twain
