The libertine president

Brownworth, Victoria A.

Bay Area Reporter;3/9/2006, Vol. 36 Issue 10, p34
The article comments on the administration of the U.S. President George W. Bush regarding the rehabilitation of New Orleans and the greater part of the U.S. Gulf Coast after the region was hit by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. In the author's view, the substitution of the destroyed houses and infrastructure in the region was slow. Reflecting on the efforts of television superstar Oprah Winfrey in helping the victims of Hurricane Katrina, the author wondered why the president can not do what Oprah has been doing.
