Private Relief Effort Leaves Gov. Effort In Dust

Hurrican Katrina relief efforts have again displayed the superiorty of private efforts over big-government nanny state programs.

While FEMA was sending in $2,000 check cards that lucky looters could spend on booze and prostitutes, Governor Huckabee and other statesmen orgainized a private relief effort whose speed, flexibility, and effectiveness left the offical government disaster relief apparatus gasping for air.

The Dem-Zette today ran an article called "Governor's storm response rankles county judges". Things were going to fast for them it seems. People must have been getting helped before they filled out the proper forms!

While I agree that communication with the County Judges could be better, the overall program seems to me to be a textbook example of how disaster relief ought to work. In this model the government is simply the galvinizing force for private sources who want to help. Gov. Huckabee rounded up such a group from scratch- and got effective help on the ground there in many cases BEFORE FEMA.

Rather than carping to the papers about how they are out of the loop, maybe they should observe what he is doing and "go and do likewise".
