A Brown Note

Or, a news brief with much the same effect: disgraced former FEMA director Michael Brown has met with St. Bernard Parish councilmembers in his new role as head of an independent disaster management consulting business. What role they have in mind for him to play in the rebuilding we don't know, but let's not rule out the "auxiliary sandbag" idea.

Of course, he's also skilled at finding other people to blame - which may really be what attracted the council's notice.

Former FEMA director might become consultant for St. Bernard Parish
Former FEMA director Michael Brown might be joining St. Bernard Parish as a paid consultant.

Brown, who resigned his FEMA post last September in the wake of stinging criticism of the agency's response to Hurricane Katrina, is expected to visit the parish next week. During his visit, Brown and parish officials will discuss the possibility of the parish contracting with Brown as a guide to help it navigate the bureaucracy of federal storm aid.

Brown now has a consulting business.

St. Bernard Parish President Henry "Junior'' Rodriguez said prices have not been discussed to this point, nor have any contracts been entered. Rodriguez and three council members met Brown recently during a trip to Washington, D.C.
