I've been reading in the news that former FEMA head Michael Brown is starting a disaster preparedness consulting firm. Talk about making lemonade when life hands you lemons. This guy astounds me. I just can't imagine being the scapegoat for the tragedy in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, and then deciding to make a new career out of it.
I mean when I do something wrong or get fired from a job, I generally take stock and determine whether I should go in a different direction. Instead, this guy determines that he will profit from his failures and humiliation. I'm sorry, I don't care how much you are paying me per hour, I just could not spend all day saying, "I really screwed up, here's how you can not be like me." My self-esteem just can't take those kind of hits, but hey, that's me. If I was in his place, I would get a job where no one knew who I was, or did not care. Some people can't do that, they always have to be in the spotlight, I guess he is one of those kind of people.
Thanks for reading,
