Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- - A. That depends on who you ask, I suppose, but here is pretty much the sum of their public for-comment comment: "No comment."
2) Q. And what do they say privately?
- - A. Not much more. "Good Idea." "Good luck." I've never seen anyone from FEMA even touch the book in my presence. If I lay one on somebody's desk, it will sit there undisturbed the whole time I'm there. One lady I left a book with told me later that the religious stuff was "a little too much" (there are bible verses at the end of Chapters 3 and 4, and Chapter 7 has a religious reference) - that's about the longest review anyone's given me. I sent a copy to James Lee Witt, the director, a year ago or so. I asked him to have someone check it for errors, and I've yet to hear back. (Is that good news or bad?) And I invaribly get an earful of silence on the phone when I "read off a section for comment" to whatever unlucky bureaucrat drew my callback slip that day. I think no one wants their name to pop up on one of my Press Releases: "(FEMA Bigwig): Great Book! Wish I had written it!!" or whatever it is they're really thinking.
