|The Rocky Mountain News obtained an email FEMA director Mike Brown sent to his friends last week. Thousands have died and a million people have been displaced but Brown complains that he 's a victim:
I don 't mind the negative press (well, actually, I do, but I try to ignore it) but it is really wearing out the family. No wonder people don 't go into public service. This country is devouring itself, the 24-hour news cycle is numbing our ability to think for ourselves.
