Quote of the day

"If the billions of dollars that have been spent on chemical, nuclear and biological response, if some of that had come over here, we would have done better. But after 9/11, the public priority was terrorism."
- William Lokey, FEMA's coordinating officer for Gulf Coast cleanup efforts

He should have said "Bush's priority," not "the public priority," but he probably wants to keep his job...
