"Brownie" five years after Katrina

Posted By on Thu, Aug 26, 2010 at 1:05 PM

This week marks the five-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. You'll be relived to know that, as the city continues to rebuild, former FEMA head Michael Brown — aka "Brownie" from President Bush's infamous, "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job" quote — is still doing a heck of a job, thank you very much.

The alt weekly paper in Denver, Westword, sat down with the now radio talk-show host to get his reflections on the disaster five years after he was largely blamed for the government's embarrassingly slow/inadequate/insulting response (see video below). Here's what Brown had to say about the Katrina criticism he still receives: "Okay, whatever."

It's an interview worth a read.
