If I could nominate a Bonehead of the Day, it would be the person who wrote this editorial in the LA Times. He or she feels the misspent FEMA debit card flap is unfair... to the people who misspent the money.
Example #1: FEMA did mismanage Katrina relief, but it's wrong to blame victims for spending irresponsibly.Heaven protect us from people like this. Nobody forced those recipients to spend money on crap. Nobody is to blame for fraud but the person committing said fraud. Sure, FEMA has problems, but this wasn't one of them.
Example #2: ...although FEMA's oversight was lacking, wasted money is an inevitable byproduct of providing rapid emergency assistance.
