In my previous posts (here and here) about the cronyism involved in the appointments of Joe Allbaugh and Mike Brown to FEMA I stated in both posts that Brown and Allbaugh were college roomates. It turns out that I was incorrect, as they are, apparently, either long time or childhood friends depending on the source, but never were they roomates. This would obviously scale back the degree of cronyism, of course, yet it is some what offset by subsequent accusations that Brown's resume was either fraudulent or padded.
This Daily Kos entry discusses the discrepancy in news reports. And credit to Fox News for bringing this to my attention, and shame on me for not picking up on this myself.
