Mardi Gras

The Washington Post takes note of an important group that is absent from the celebration -- New Orleans' black middle-class, which is basically gone. There has been so much talk of the impact on poor blacks in New Orleans (and rightfully so), but these middle-class professionals are the leaders of the city's black community. Their presence will be vital if rebuilding is to be done the right way.

Meanwhile, President Pinhead admitted in an ABC interview that he had no idea people were suffering after Katrina hit, until he saw it on teevee (via Huffington Post).

How many "My Pet Goat" moments does this guy get?
