Default NYTimes Editorial:Exploiting Katrina

It was almost inevitable that we would see every kind of legislative lunacy after Katrina, proposed in the name of accelerating the cleanup in New Orleans, improving the nation's energy security or achieving other worthy objectives. And so we have: Congress has used Katrina as cover for ideas that could never stand on their own and for a remarkably brazen raid on the public treasury and environmental protections.
Congress's first obligation is to help Louisiana's stricken residents get back on their feet. It is also obliged to design and deliver a reconstruction plan that makes sense now and for the future. To exploit this disaster for short-term political and ideological gain is cynical even by Congressional standards.

"I learned that familiar paths traced in the dusk of summer evenings may lead as well to prisons as to innocent, untroubled sleep." (Albert Camus, The Stranger)
