NEW YORK — Emergency officials who prepared Louisiana’s plan for responding to a major hurricane never guessed that one of their duties would be to protect aid workers from gunmen, one of the state’s senior disaster officials said Monday.

Speaking at a symposium in New York, Arthur Jones, chief of disaster recovery for Louisiana’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, said he was caught off guard by the violence in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. [emphasis added]

Could that be the strongest signal yet that the recovery from hurricane Katrina is going wonderfully, if the chief of disaster recovery for the Lousianna state FEMA is taking some time to fly to New York City for a conference?
