Boortz finds the bright sideto the flooding in Fargo, N.D.– it provides us an opportunity to play “Let’s compare disasters!”:
We’ve all be watching the drama from Fargo, North Dakota. Floods are
bad enough, but when you have to deal with those floods in -11 degree
temperatures I would imagine it is almost unbearable.
OK .. now for the
insensitive thought. Let’s keep some score. Let’s see how well the residents of
Fargo handle this disaster vs. the residents of New Orleans. The parasite
quotient in New Orleans gives a huge lead to the denizens of the frozen north.
I’m guessing that three and one-half years from now you will not see many Fargo
residents living in motels as guests of the taxpayers.
You just know Boortz’s innards tingled as he tapped out that wondrous “parasite
quotient” locution.Don’t complain. Someone has got to say it! If Boortz won’t use the current
misery of Midwestern flood victims to score points on the previous misery of New Orleans
flood victims…who will?
As you may know, Neal Boortz spent some of his younger days writing speeches
for Georgia GovernorLester
Maddox.In recent years, Boortz glommed on to the conservative talk radio
bandwagon, achieved celebrity, and wrote a half-baked book about a flat tax, or
a pick axe, orsomething along those lines. Over a year ago, when
Boortz came to New Orleans for a book signing, he was repeatedly invited bylocal
hoststo go out to lunch with them, and then tour the flooded neighborhoods of the
city. Boortz dismissed their invitations, indicating that he would prefer to eat a
and talk at length about how much he enjoyed flying his personal
That’s the sort of intrepid, inquisitive mind Boortz
possesses. He’ll go to a stricken American city after an historic disaster to hawk books, eat sliders, and brag on his plane. Then he’ll
go back home and tell his fans to “keep score” on how poorly the parasites in New
Orleans match up with the hearty midwestern spirit on display in
