Maybe Our National Bird Is the Ostrich

Reuters reports that FEMA doesn't want the news media to take photographs of New Orleans dead.

Hardly surprising, considering the Bush administration prevented the news media from photographing flag-draped caskets of U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq. Keeping heads planted firmly in sand seems to be our current government's speciality.

This is an incredibly talented and flexible administration. Who else could bury their heads in the sand while living in hermetically sealed bubbles? I didn't know that was even possible.

In accordance with FEMA's wishes, I will not publish the offending pictures. Wait a minute. I'm not a member of the news media. And I will not let people forget:
