Paved With Good Intentions

No opportunity for fraud, abuse and black market enterprising here. Nope. None at all.

WASHINGTON - The federal government plans to begin doling out debit cards worth $2,000 each to adult victims of Hurricane Katrina, The Associated Press has learned.


The cards could be used to buy food, transportation, gas and other essentials the displaced people need, according to a state official who was on the call and requested anonymity because the program has not been publicly announced.

So, these cards could also be used for cigarettes, liquor, and iPods?

Where do I sign up?
