There is no shame left in the world
Michael "Brownie" Brown, the ex FEMA director who botched the Katrina relief efforts, has started his own private disaster preparedness consulting firm. No, really. "If I can help people focus on preparedness, how to be better prepared in their homes and better prepared in their businesses — because that goes straight to the bottom line — then I hope I can help the country in some way," Brown told the Rocky Mountain News for its Thursday editions. I guess his consulting would be along the line of giving them a list of his decisions as FEMA director and telling them "Don't do the shit that I've done and you will be fine." Best part of the story: Brown said companies already have expressed interested in his consulting business, Michael D. Brown LLC. He plans to run it from the Boulder area, where he lived before joining the Bush administration in 2001. "I'm doing a lot of good work with some great clients," Brown said. "My wife, children and my grandchild still love me. My parents are still proud of me." And they are the only ones who feel this way Brownie. They are the only ones.
