I suppose there was some intent in Jeffrey Sadow’s column other than piling on Gov. Kathleen Blanco for her actions during Hurricane Katrina — kind of a 10th anniversary shaming. If so, I can’t find it.

Mr. Sadow quite correctly says, “If we allow officeholders past and present to distract us from their failures to perform adequately, we deserve the inferior governance their kind always brings us.” Where is his outrage over Bobby Jindal’s failures?

Oh, I forgot, he likes Gov. Jindal.
