I missed her name.

But the NBC Nightly News, which is what we happened to have the sound turned up at the bullpen today, had a short segment on a woman at the New Orleans Convention Center. She's a registered nurse. She is the only health care professional at the Convention Center, where New Orleans' homeless have been told to converge and found no services, no security,and no way to get out.

She was there as a civilian.

Without supplies, without assistance, treating everyone she could, begging medication from bystanders to suit each new crisis.

There's your American hero, Mr. Bush.

I hope Condi spared a thought for her during the intermission of Spamalot. If, God help us, that rumor is true.

Though I really hope it's not.
