WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Coast Guard Vice Adm. Thad Allen will replace Michael Brown, the embattled FEMA director, as the on-site head of hurricane relief operations in the Gulf Coast, a senior administration official told CNN.
Brown will head back to Washington from Louisiana to oversee the big picture, the official said.
The "big picture"?!? Yeah, right...
(Thanks to Gloria for the heads up on this -- am working and so had the sound muted on my TV.)
