Rabbit Hole Wednesday

Rabbit Hole Wednesday again…so soon? It’s beginning to feel like we live here.

For starters we drop our jaws as ex-Louisiana governor Kathleen Blanco criticizes Houston for their lack of an adequate evacuation plan:

  “You have to have a coordinated effort so that people have confidence in Government getting them out of harm’s way, in a sensible way.”

I guess in her mind the evacuation of New Orleans after Katrina went smoothly.

Former Governor Kathleen Blanco says she’s curious to why Houston never developed an evacuation plan like Louisiana had in 2005.

“We developed a staged evacuation program, getting the people in the lower lying regions to move out first. Putting a lot of pressure by not saying mandatory.”

I hate to but might I remind Blanco that 1,833 died in Katrina, primarily in New Orleans? Maybe that’s why Houston “never developed an evacuation plan like Louisiana.”

In other rabbit hole-worthy news: FBI claims public isn’t interested in Hillary’s emails.

Hillary Clinton’s case isn’t interesting enough to the public to justify releasing the FBI’s files on her, the bureau said this week in rejecting an open-records request by a lawyer seeking to have the former secretary of state punished for perjury.

Now there’s an interesting new standard by which the FBI pursues perpetrators of lawlessness. And I wonder who’s doing the polling to determine the level of public interest.

You’ll have to take it from here; that’s all the time I can spend in the rabbit hole this week.
