Red Cross president quits

President Marsha Evans, who led the American Red Cross through an uneven and much-criticized response to Hurricane Katrina, resigned Tuesday in another sign of troubles inside the organization that bears prime responsibility for delivering relief to victims of disasters.

Sue says:

Red Cross is being criticized for not reaching remote areas. They are a private, not-for-profit charity … should we *expect* them to help us all? Isn’t this the role of the government? They are considered by many to be quasi-governmental … but they *aren’t*. This is that "compassionate conservative" garbage again.  Let the citizens take care of the emergencies. And what happens?
