Default NYTimes Editorial:Mr. B**h in New Orleans

Once again, as he did after 9/11, Mr. B**h has responded to disaster with disconcerting uncertainty, then risen to the occasion later. Once again, he has delivered a speech that will reassure many Americans that he understands the enormity of the event and the demands of leadership to come. But there are plenty of reasons for concern. After 9/11, Mr. B**h responded not only with a stirring speech at the ruins of the World Trade Center and a principled response to the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Default NYTimes Op-Ed: Not the New Deal

It's a given that the B**h administration, which tried to turn Iraq into a laboratory for conservative economic policies, will try the same thing on the Gulf Coast. The Heritage Foundation, which has surely been helping Karl Rove develop the administration's recovery plan, has already published a manifesto on post-Katrina policy. It calls for waivers on environmental rules, the elimination of capital gains taxes and the private ownership of public school buildings in the disaster areas. And if any of the people killed by Katrina, most of them poor, had a net worth of more than $1.5 million, Heritage wants to exempt their heirs from the estate tax.
