Rolled Up Sleeves

Rolled Up SleevesEmail correspondence from the Federal Emergency Management Agency during the peak of the Hurricane Katrina crisis reads like a skit from "Saturday Night Live," according to Washington Post media critic Howard Kurtz. Highlights include notes from FEMA director Michael Brown's press secretary, fretting that he needed more time for dinner before a TV appearance, and advice to Brown on how to pose for cameras: "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."
