Porch Quote 

"Restaurants are getting busy."
Sharon Worthy, then-FEMA Director Michael Brown's press secretary, in an e-mail to colleagues on Aug. 31 after Brown was sent an urgent e-mail from Marty Bahamonde, a FEMA official in New Orleans, warning that thousands of evacuees had no food or water and "estimates are many will die within hours." Worthy responded that Brown needed more time to eat dinner at a Baton Rouge restaurant. The e-mails were made public last week at a U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing.
