Brown was more worried about fashion

Un-fucking-believable<br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/worldlatest/story/0,1280,-5390350,00.html">www.guardian.co.uk/worldl...50,00.html</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br>The e-mails show that Brown, who had been planning to step down from<br>his post when the storm hit, was preoccupied with his image on<br>television even as one of the first FEMA officials to arrive in New<br>Orleans, Marty Bahamonde, was reporting a crisis situation of<br>increasing chaos to FEMA officials.<br><br>``My eyes must certainly be deceiving me. You look fabulous - and I'm<br>not talking the makeup,'' writes Cindy Taylor, FEMA's deputy director<br>of public affairs to Brown on 7:10 a.m. local time on Aug. 29.<br><br>``I got it at Nordstroms,'' Brown writes back. ``Are you proud of me?<br>Can I quit now? Can I go home?'' An hour later, Brown adds: ``If<br>you'll look at my lovely FEMA attire, you'll really vomit. I am a<br>fashion god.''<br><br>A week later, Brown's aide, Sharon Worthy, reminds him to pay heed to<br>his image on TV. ``In this crises and on TV you just need to look more<br>hardworking ... ROLL UP THE SLEEVES!'' Worthy wrote, noting that even<br>President Bush ``rolled his sleeves to just below the elbow.'' <p>--<br>When all else fails... panic.</p><i></i>

This off-topic, but...I'm getting really tired of reading your sign-off tag. <br><br>As a joke, it's a one-off. Like most jokes. <br><br>As an integral part of every one of your posts, it detracts from your contributions, which I find overwhelmingly worth reading otherwise. <p></p><i></i>

Point taken. I'm not one to panic easily anyway. <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 8) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/glasses.gif ALT="8)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p></p><i></i>

I've said it before, but Brown threw a prestigious Arabian horse organization into bankruptcy with the lawsuits brought against him. I'll bet he was a "dedicated follower of fashion" then, too (remember that Kinks song?) --MaryK <p></p><i></i>
