38. Actually this should get you ANGRIER at what happened in New Orleans
you will not get any arguments from me that it WAS a clusterfuck of epic proportions and some of it was quite on purpose. I have some intimate knowledge on that one by the way, rather on how to get AROUND them to get the help in. Long story, surreal week.

But this is not propaganda... and unless you can find me some of that pixie dust that we can use to move oh the first MEU than it is actually REALISTICALLY moving... stuff it.
