This Is Why We Need A Federal Government

For all the Grover "drown it in a bathtub" Norquists of the world; for all the self-identified libertarians (except when it comes to paying to drive); for all the suburbanites who think they pay too much in taxes as they itemize their McMansion's mortgage deductions;

These last few days show clearly why we have, and need, a Federal Government. Local and state resources are clearly not enough, and the Feds are failing to do their job. Draw whatever conclusion you will, but Norquist deserves special scorn.
