Question of the Day — 9/17/05

Issue: Red tape frustrates law officers: Idaho relief efforts for Gulf Coast not welcomed/James Hagengruber, Spokesman-Review.

Shoshone County Sheriff Chuck Reynalds: “It was a paperwork bureaucracy nightmare,” Reynalds said. “These were fully certified law enforcement officers, fully armed and ready to go to work. We weren’t seeking reimbursement. We were just there. … You know damn well they could use all the help they can get.”

Question: Do you suppose it’s time to rethink charitable efforts for the Gulf Coast?
