According to an article in the New York Times, “former FEMA Director Michael Brown, heavily criticized for his agency’s slow response to Hurricane Katrina, is starting a disaster preparedness consulting firm to help clients avoid the sort of errors that cost him his job.” Hmm… Is it just me, but doesn’t it take some demonstrated ability in order to become a consultant??
In the article, Brown said “officials need to ‘take inventory’ of what’s going on in a disaster to be able to answer questions to avoid appearing unaware of how serious a situation is.” Uhh, yeah–perhaps someone should have told him that back a few months ago.
That’s it–I’m becoming a consultant. I’m qualified.
