Still no real relief for the Gulf Coast...

Seventeen months after Hurricane Katrina, places like Pass Christian, Mississippi, still rely on temporary buildings, and many of the region's poorest people have found little relief from mental health and money problems.

Almost a year and a half after one of the most costly and deadly national disasters in the nation's history, there has been little evidence of state or federal investigations into alleged criminal activity by the insurance industry.

And Senator Lieberman, Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, wants no part of any investigation into the performance of the Bush Administration after Hurricane Katrina. I guess he is too busy promoting new taxes to support his favorite pet project --- the Iraqi War.
