Heckuva job, Brownie!

Ex-FEMA head to start disaster planning firm
Brown fiercely criticized for agency's slow response to Hurricane Katrina
DENVER - Former FEMA Director Michael Brown, heavily criticized for his agency’s slow response to Hurricane Katrina, is starting a disaster preparedness consulting firm to help clients avoid the sort of errors that cost him his job.

“If I can help people focus on preparedness, how to be better prepared in their homes and better prepared in their businesses — because that goes straight to the bottom line — then I hope I can help the country in some way,” Brown told the Rocky Mountain News for its Thursday editions.

Brown said officials need to “take inventory” of what’s going on in a disaster to be able to answer questions to avoid appearing unaware of how serious a situation is.

Maybe his first client will be the RNC, afterall - they're the ones with the confidence in his abilities... shovelling horse shit.

Not that I needed another reason to love Charlize Theron, but...

Theron & Townsend Plan Wedding - Sort Of

Actors Charlize Theron
and Stuart Townsend

Hot Hollywood couple Charlize Theron and Stuart Townsend are planning to wed the day it becomes legal for gays and lesbians to wed across America. The longtime couple are tired of being asked about their marriage plans so they've come up with a novel line to keep the press happy.

Theron tells US news show Extra, "We came up with a new idea that we said that we would get married the day that gays and lesbians can get married - when that right is given to them.

We've decided that we're gonna use that in a positive way, so the day that law gets passed then we'll get married."
