Public sectors always fail

The following link, by Lew Rockwell, says it all about the real culprit in the unfolding disaster that is New Orleans.

Key paragraph:

Only the public sector can preside over a situation this precarious and display utter and complete inertia. What do these people have to lose? They are not real owners. There are no profits or losses at stake. They do not have to answer to risk-obsessed insurance companies who insist on premiums matching even the most remote contingencies. So long as it seems to work, they are glad to go about their business in the soporific style famous to all public sectors everywhere.

I think that kid's gonna carry those kitties several miles to "safety," only to open that airtight container and find them all dead from suffocation. Nice job, kid.

Just in case some of your readers need extra help, M. Roget:

soporific

1 a : causing or tending to cause sleep b : tending to dull awareness or alertness
2 : of, relating to, or marked by sleepiness or lethargy
