Flash: New York Times Grows Set of Balls

Here's their editorial on the travesty-in-the-making that is New Orleans

Irony runs deep these days. The two biggest problems for the Bush administration are now urban planning and state building--two things that Bush et al used to think the government had no business doing. Its nice to think that we can blame everything on Bush, but this stuff is bigger than one fucking moron from Texas. He's a symptom of a trend of greed and self-centeredness. Americans think that their shit doesn't stink and that we can do whatever we want to whomever we want without consequences. The entire cost of rebuilding New Orleans is one third of our new tax cut. That makes me throw up in my mouth.

If we ever lived in a nation-wide community, its dead. And the only thing sadder than that is the punk ass law student trying to justify this by some sort of trumped-up federalism claim that the real responsibility should be on the state and local governments. As long as we're killing Mexicans on the boarder and bombing the shit out of someone somewhere else, it doesn't matter that children starve in Appalachia or that an entire city is sinking into the sea. This is the sick sad world that the libertarians always wanted...we're freeriding on the future. Enjoy it motherfuckers.
