Grover Norquist's Dream Come True
For years, anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist has been fantasizing about "making the government small enough so we can drown it in the bathtub."
This week we see what happens when government's ability to respond to human needs is reduced by budget cuts, privatization, cronyism, and incompetence. In New Orleans, the government has been drowned under the waters of Katrina. In the resulting chaos, with no one in charge, no one providing leadership or help, thousands of innocent people are dying along with any semblance of civilization.
