I'm sure that Finchem's insistance that the Zurich Classic be staged in New Orleans had more to do with making sure that Zurich's sponsor check was delivered to TOUR coffers than any altruistic feelings for the devastated city. The opportunity to turn this crass profit motive into a cynical public relations windfall was merely a collateral benefit. The TOUR is strictly about big money and its gigantic "non-profit" 401C3's tax deductability scam for their multi-national "sponsors".

Doug, I've got to take exception to your statement that the government ignored the plight of the city of New Orleans. Katrina was a monumental catastrophe and a logistical nightmare. The airport and roads were blocked and flooded. Massive aid came through as soon as it was logistically possible. The US Coast Guard is an integral part of Federal law enforcement with the Dept. of Transportation. The Coast Guard performed thousands of rooftop rescues as well as thousands of others by boat and vehicle. The US Army and Marine Corps distributed huge amounts of food, water, and supplies as soon as it became feasible. All of these agencies are parts of the government. Of course, nothing is ever perfect in a disaster of this magnitude. However, it is important to remember that first response to any local emergency is not now, nor never has been, the responsibilty of the Federal government.

Alex is right. What are the powers of the Federal Government? Maybe we should reread the Constitution.
