God Flunks Clean-Up Duty

According to today's print version of the Wall Street Journal (registration req'd), Rep. Richard Baker (R-La.) was overheard making the following statements to lobbyists: "We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans. We couldn't do it, but God did."

Baker later explained, reports the Journal, that he "didn't intend flippancy" but has "long wanted to improve low-income housing" in the city.

If Katrina was God's way of cleaning up public housing, he needs to work on his precision. Someone needs to tell the Dieu-dude that his hurricane also "cleaned up" hundreds of private homes throughout Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.
