Your Safety "Life Coach?"

In what may be the single most pitiful article on Michael Brown that I have ever read, the NYTimes is reporting that Heckuva Job Brownie will be starting his own safety consulting business. He'll be teaching clients how to not be like him.
''Hurricane Katrina showed how bad disasters can be, and there's an incredible need for individuals and businesses to understand how important preparedness is,'' he said.
Erm...okay. Now there's a selling point if I ever heard one. Brownie says he's lined up some clients, presumably people who think he can get them access to folks on Joe Albaugh's contracting coattails. And he's gotten some very postive feedback.
''I'm doing a lot of good work with some great clients,'' Brown said. ''My wife, children and my grandchild still love me. My parents are still proud of me.''
Uhhhh...yeah. I'm sure the folks in the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans and across the rest of the Gulf Coast find that reassuring. Ahem.
