QUOTES OF THE WEEK 

   "We as a community are afraid of change. We have to stop that." — Councilmember At-Large Arnie Fielkow addressing New Orleans Recreation Citizens Advisory Panel, which had just delivered a report advocating for increasing the New Orleans Recreation Department's budget and reorganizing its governance.

   "FEMA did make significant changes afterwards, and I truly believe that in the event it would happen again — remember, this is almost biblical, this is almost biblical in proportion. Nobody ever anticipated." — Former U.S. Homeland Security Tom Ridge on The Rachel Maddow Show Sept. 1, repeating the "no one could've seen this coming" trope about Hurricane Katrina and the federal floods.
