    Roll up your sleeves, look like you're working

    Two days after Katrina hit, Marty Bahamonde, one of the only FEMA employees in New Orleans, wrote to Brown that "the situation is past critical" and listed problems including many people near death and food and water running out at the Superdome.

    Brown's entire response was: "Thanks for the update. Anything specific I need to do or tweak?"

    On September 12 Brown resigned, 10 days after President Bush told him, "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job."

    on August 26, just days before Katrina made landfall, Brown e-mailed his press secretary, Sharon Worthy, about his attire, asking: "Tie or not for tonight? Button-down blue shirt?"

    A few days later, Worthy advised Brown: "Please roll up the sleeves of your shirt, all shirts. Even the president rolled his sleeves to just below the elbow. In this [crisis] and on TV you just need to look more hard-working."
