There's a BBC Radio 4 program called On The Ropes. They talk to a famous person who has hit the skids.

This week, it's Michael Brown, the person in charge of FEMA when hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, who became the scapegoat and hate-figure for the disaster.

You can hear his side of the story (until next Tuesday) here:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/shows/rpms/radio4/ontheropes....

or in the archive permanently here (Tuesday May 8 2007):
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/ontheropes/pip/archive/

It's well worth listening to.

This is not a thread to start rowing over the disaster.

Go start your own thread for that. I'm posting this because it's an interesting broadcast and many people will benefit from hearing it.

It's a 30 minute program.

Cheers,
Jon.

And when you've finished, try In Our Time:

Ground breaking radio, fascinating stuff.

shake He didn't "become" these, as he was generally detested for even being "considered" for the position in the first place! Just look at some of the other 'appointees' and YOU tell ME what their "qualifications" are for whatever it is they are being 'proposed' FOR, besides being a FLUNKIE of the current administration! Who is that "industry" asshat rat bastard they WANT to head up "Consumer Affairs" for the "JORB", and that fought them tooth and nail before to LOWER the "standards"? yeah, let's put "Drug Companies" in 'charge' of the programs which will benefit THESE as well eh? NO F'n WAY "hoser"!
