Is FEMA Now in Charge at ED?

It seems that waiting for relief from the corrupt incompetents is not just limited to poor people on roofs in New Orleans or in the small towns in Mississippi where guys are recruited to wear FEMA shirts and go around telling everyone that help is on the way. Maggie Spellings' hush on the question of testing for the displaced and traumatized thousands of school children is just another example of the arrogant, uncaring malfeasance that exudes from every operation run by Bush Co.

The Detroit Free Press reports today that the Michigan Department of Education has taken it upon themselves to show as much humanity as Federal law allows by waiving requirements for displaced Katrina victims to take state social studies and science tests this year. As for the math and reading, well, go ask Maggie and her lawyers, who represent the Party for decentralization of government power to the states, right?
