FEMA suppressed warnings of toxic Katrina trailers

    Apparently, worries about lawsuits were more important than taking steps to fix a problem ... so residents continued to live in trailers with unsafe levels of formaldehyde in them while lawyers stalled proposed testing of trailers.


    "Do not initiate any testing until we give the OK," FEMA attorney Patrick Pearson advised in an e-mail. "While I agree we should conduct testing, we should not do so until we are fully prepare (sic) to respond to the results. Once you get the results and should they indicate a problem, the clock is ticking on our duty to respond to them."

    So getting most of them stuck in the mud in Arkansas was a good thing after all.

    Heck of a job again, Brownie.
  3. Is there more formaldehyde in those trailers than there is in Korean beer?
    Oh, and WPE, by the way.

    Bureaucratic brain damage, at its very worst.

    For all you guys who blessed us with this bunch . . . be proud.

    Be oh, so, proud.
