Breakdown of Hurricane Katrina Government Spending

*Developing Story*

The Federal Procurement Data System posted its latest information on hurricane-related contract awards. The total spent on post-Katrina contracts as of June 23 stands at $1.9 billion and this doesn't even count most FEMA and Defense Department contracts.

So how wisely is the government spending money?

Let's see. Remember that cool night-time photo-op Bush did in front of Jackson Square in New Orleans? Where he promised to completely fix the levees (which was never done). It cost $61,000 just for the generators, air conditioners and trailers. Oh wait, $10,000+ for the light towers for that, and we're just getting started.

How about $21,000 for a 5-drawer filing cabinet! (Brought to New Orleans from Illinois, because obviously there were no 5-drawer legal cabinets anywhere in the southern United States).

Oh yea, there's more...

In case anyone was wondering why the site was down or hasn't been updated in a little while, this is because our servers were located in New Orleans and the hurricane affected us all. As I write this, I'm still in the middle of this, operating on generator power in a very dark, scary city. More later, but I think the site is back online and solid now.

We here at BSAlert are going to keep a running tab of major news stories that were broken by non-traditional media sources (i.e. Bloggers/Internet). See "Read More" for the details and how you can contribute.

The truth is every day, major stories are "buried" by the mainstream media because they don't serve the interest of their executives or corporate sponsors. In many cases, the "Internet buzz" ends up becoming so substantive that even the mainstream must acknowledge these stories or call more obvious attention to their questionable journalistic standards. We're going to keep track of these stories to show that there are many superior sources of news and information than the corrupted mainstream institutions.

Observations on the 2004 Oscars

[The "Buzz"]
[BSAlert *exclusive*]
Since maybe some of you don't have the patience for a three-hour telecast, here are my reflections on the event.

First, the monologue. Generally, it was funny. Politically speaking, it was reasonably balanced. During his monologue, Chris Rock did a good ten-minute riff on Bush. ("Just imagine if you work at the Gap…and when you close up for the day, your register is $75 trillion dollars short.") The audience seemed to love it (surprised?). He did a very mild jab at Michael Moore, but only after saying nice things about his movie.

He also said some nice things about the film "The Passion of the Christ," and Jesus in general, to provide balance. And on a more personal level, if he ever zinged anybody, like Cuba Gooding, he managed to turn it around on himself before he was done.

A Primer On The Fairness Doctrine: How We Screwed Up

[BSAlert *exclusive*]
With the Internet overflowing with various pundits speculating on "What went wrong in the 2004 election?", I'd like to add my theory. Unlike other theories dancing around which take into account partisan intent, what people are thinking and the use of lots of tin-foil hats, I think there's a very straightforward path that shows how and why the American populace has developed into the polarized mindset that was responsible for the current political climate.

This is the first part of a two part rambling diatribe. The first part outlines what I feel are the two major causes of most of the problems. The second part outlines ideas I have on solving the problems in a realistic way given an environment that is vehemently hostile towards equitible debate.
