Finally, El Jefe has arrived.
He isn't riding a white horse, but a Humvee--it matters not. Lt. General Russel Honore of the U.S. Army is now in charge in the Katrina-devastated Gulf Coast region. This guy is regular Army, a 3-star general and, apparently, a real son-of-a-bitch.
Thank God. It's time someone with some balls showed up down there.
All I know is what I read in Honore's bio, and from what I have seen on CNN--barking orders to everyone in sight, and going street-to-street in New Orleans with the troops.
Even better, Honore is a Louisiana Cajun, a native of south Lousiana who knows New Orleans and the situtation he is dealing with.
P.S. - Mayor Nagin is around, but what has happened to Governor Blanco? Have aliens snatched her?
