yeah, we need one. should be powell not giuliani (tip of the hat though). (a) powell immediately connects with honore (shared experience, language), (b) powell no longer military, (c) powell gets chance for personal redemption (& what is NOLA but a call for national redemption?). giuliani, otoh, showed exemplary leadership skill during/after 911 — which may not be "repeatable". what's needed is a leader capable of parachuting anywhere capable of building structure & command instantly & effectively. powell's military background plus private citizenship allows him to connect with a "blended army" of military, volunteers, other private citizens, etc, across state lines (one true challenge: being able to connect, be real, acknowledge 25-year old shaven head marines AND the chubby blonde volunteer who's a cracker-jack organizer :: each working 28-hours a day needing a leader to connect to who knows what being on the front line means).
real question is transfer of leadership/power from president to czar. keep in mind that this is a full-blown domestic catastrophe at a level never seen before. how that's set up travels down the chain of command, i think.

Vedem (In the Lead) was a magazine created by a bunch of teenagers at the Terezín concentration camp during WWII. a book review on Uncle Tom's Cabin (quoting description from wikipedia) compares the fate of African American slaves with that of the Jews in Terezín, noting that until the deportations began, African-Americans had it worse because their families were torn apart: now that there are deportations, the two groups are suffering about the same. the editor-in-chief of this fine magazine was young Petr Ginz whose sketch of the Earth seen from the moon was taken on STS-107 Columbia by astronaut Ilan Ramon.
slavery & repression are deeply embedded in the ground of america. imho, it's not that we hate or fear one another, we may just not know how to transform ourselves into a non-slave nation. just remember: this nation was built on the backs & mixed with the tears of black slaves. what could this people do if given a chance to rebuild this nation from love? i see a vision of New Orleans rebuilt as a Green City with great food, music & people. i also see a school named after Petr Ginz. see you at the opening ceremonies.
AQ 221 = BAD GREEN CITY
