NBC News anchor Brian Williams' comments about dead bodies, Hurricane Katrina starting to gain attention, draw scrutiny
Williams’ account of seeing a body float by in the French Quarter — which remained largely dry — and even a claim of catching dysentery from drinking Katrina floodwaters have raised eyebrows among bloggers and elsewhere since he took it on the chin this week over a claim that he rode in a helicopter that was downed by a rocket-propelled grenade in Iraq.
“I was instead in a following aircraft. We all landed after the ground fire incident and spent two harrowing nights in a sandstorm in the Iraq desert,” Williams said Wednesday. He painted his earlier description as a “bungled attempt” to thank an Iraq War veteran.
The online feeding frenzy quickly turned to the 55-year-old anchor’s signature assignment: covering Katrina from before it made landfall, when he spent the night of the storm with refuge-seekers in the Superdome and then reported on the harrowing days that followed.
“When you look out of your hotel window in the French Quarter and watch a man float by face down, when you see bodies that you last saw in Banda Aceh, Indonesia, and swore to yourself that you would never see in your country,” Williams said in a 2006 interview.

Is there anyone out there that can tell me what the Republican party stands for? (I been asking this question now for two years, I have yet to get a real answer)
It seems like in the past few years they just seem to go along with the Democratic party. They don’t stand up against anything. I admire the way the Dems stick together for their causes no matter what. They aren’t afraid to shut down the government to get what they want. The Republicans are supposed to be wanting things that are good for America (low taxes, availability of jobs, school choice, no Obamacare) and yet they become cowards when they are challenged on anything. EXcept for a few brave ones like Cruz, Palin, etc.
Make sure you shave close before your professor kisses you goodnight, and yeah, I understand he can't knock you up, but you should still insist he wear a condom, (you know, for "STD's", -Stupidity Transmitted Delusions), just for your protection. That being said, you might want to check in to the nearest clinic!
