FEMA addresses emergency

Suddenly, long after the November election, the hot topic here in Florida is that FEMA, the federal agency responsible for vital restoration and aid after last summer's hurricanes, has apparently mismanaged delivery of emergency funds.

For example, it gave Miami-Dade nearly $30 million in "relief," failing to notice that winds did not blow there even once. Meanwhile, hard-hit but poor counties in the middle of the state have received far less.

A FEMA scandal: Wonders never cease.

I had hinted at such. But now it's clear that FEMA is addressing a real emergency: Miami-Dade could have cost George the election - with all Jeb's support, he only got 47% there. If this isn't a disaster area to be managed, what is?
