August 29, 2005:

 What was happening:
What Bush was doing:

What Bush was doing; i.e.eating cake with St. John McCain.
Later that night, Bush was joyful at another GOP fundraiser in California;
even grabbing a guitar and strutting around on stage. Urgent messages
to him were piling up about the unfolding catastrophe in New Orleans and
the Gulf Coast. Bush ignored them, got a full night's sleep and got back on
Air Force 1 to return to his vacation in Crawford Texas and clearing brush
on his ranch. RIP NOLA.
