Chronology of News Events in 2005

Check it out. As far as I can tell, there do not appear to be any inaccurate headlines, though some important things were, of course, left out. For example, shortly after New Orleans Mayor Nagin ordered the city's evacuation, Louisiana Governor Blanco said, on national TV, that she had not signed off on the decision. She went on to say, "The mayor certainly has ordered that but the governor, and that would be me, would have to enforce it or implement it." Blanco is an excellent example of one who hoards power but refuses accountability for her actions, or in this case inaction. By the end of the week, Gov. Blanco and Sen. Landrieu were deflecting blame by, as usual, blaming President Bush for the disaster in New Orleans.
