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.
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?
