According to Wikipedia Chtuzpah is: ” the quality of audacity, for good or for bad”.

I think it is best described as after murdering your parents, throwing yourself on the mercy of the court because you are an orphan.

So Michael Brown, former Arabian Horse organization guy and underachieving ex-FEMA director is starting his own consultancy that specializes in DISASTER PREPAREDNESS.

From CNN:

“If I can help people focus on preparedness, how to be better prepared in their homes and better prepared in their businesses — because that goes straight to the bottom line — then I hope I can help the country in some way,” Brown told the Rocky Mountain News for its Thursday editions.

I wouldn’t want this guy consulting on barbecue preparedness, let alone disaster preparedness.

But there is some good news in this story. No, New Orleans hasn’t been cleaned up and repaired. No the refugees are still living far from home, trying to rebuild their lives. But Michale Brown is doing well:

“I’m doing a lot of good work with some great clients,” Brown said. “My wife, children and my grandchild still love me. My parents are still proud of me.”
