Katrina update: Michael Brown's e-mail surfaces

Flip messages by ex-FEMA boss exposed

As Hurricane Katrina ripped into the Gulf Coast, the government's emergency management chief was making flippant remarks about his responsibilities, e-mails show. "Can I quit now? Can I come home?" former Federal Emergency Management Director Michael Brown wrote on the morning of the hurricane to the agency's deputy director of public affairs. The e-mails, posted by Democrat Rep. Charlie Melancon, are a sampling of more than 1,000 provided to the House committee assessing responses to Katrina by all levels of government. CNN has the story.
