    No, you do not know the significance of the purple hydrant... and you never will.

    Guy, George may have an ego problem you're turning into a real embarassment for Iowa. At least as annoying than that other fool from Mt Pleasant (who now squats at our governor's desk in DM). Less talking/time on line would be good.

    I'm glad you rsoup edited his post. RACE has nothing to do with this. It never did and it never will.

    Secondly, the entire point of this thread remains the fact that it would be ludicrous to give $200 billion dollars to the single most incompetent and corrupt government in the US. It would be like throwing the money out of the window. This was not about not providing money where it is needed in a fashion that will ensure it is spent on rebuilding and repopulating the Gulf Coast and not on strip bars, Victoria's Secret and designer handbags.

    Case in point:
    Storm Donations Found at Official's Home 2 hours, 39 minutes ago

    BATON ROUGE, La. - Police found cases of food, clothing and tools intended for hurricane victims at the home of the chief administrative officer for a New Orleans suburb, authorities said Wednesday.

    Officers searched Cedric Floyd's home because of complaints that city workers were helping themselves to donations for hurricane victims. Floyd, who runs the day-to-day operations in the suburb of Kenner, was in charge of distributing the goods.

    Police plan to seek a charge of committing an illegal act as a public official against Floyd, and more charges against other city workers are possible, police Capt. Steve Caraway said.

    The donations filled a large pickup truck four times. "It was an awful lot of stuff," Caraway said.

    The donated materials must be processed as evidence but eventually will be distributed to victims. "We have lots of families that are begging for these supplies," said Attorney General Charles Foti, whose office assisted in the investigation.

    Attempts to reach Floyd were unsuccessful at home numbers listed under his name in Kenner. His office number went unanswered after business hours.

    Philip Ramon, chief of staff to Kenner Mayor Philip Capitano, has said city officials were investigating the alleged pilfering but added that many employees were themselves hurricane victims.
