A national treasure is revealed

The NYT's house conservative may not be a conservative, but David Brooks does have an amusing sense of the ridiculous:

Among the many achievements of the human race - Chartres Cathedral, the Mona Lisa - surely the New Orleans emergency preparedness plan must rank among the greatest, and the fact that this plan turned out to be irrelevant to reality should not detract from its stature as a masterpiece of bureaucratic thinking.... One can imagine the PowerPoint presentations! The millions of cascading bullet points! The infinity of hours spent planning a hurricane response that would make a Prussian officer gasp with reverence!

The quality of the facilitating must have been surpassed only by the magnificence of the interfacing!

And the bureaucrats wonder why the masses despise them in spite of their selfless "public service".
