Mikhail Gorbachev, the last leader of that failed Marxist (sorry, I repeat myself) experiment in Russia, was in New Orleans last Friday. And he had this to say:
"No matter the flooding and the hurricane, the red tape and bureaucracy survive."
Holy dialectic materialism! We've been saying for nearly two years that it's the red tape and the bureaucracy that are choking our recovery after Katrina and Rita, and now we have someone who is an expert on red tape and bureaucracy say so. If Cde. Gorbachev thinks it's bad, it's gotta be bad!!
Mickey also said some things about calling for a revolution, too, but I wouldn't be too concerned. Outside of Hollywood and some parts of the Northeast - and the National Council of Churches - nobody really cares what a has-been Communist leader has to say anymore.
