Former head of FEMA Micheal D. Brown (Brownie as he is known to former President George W. Bush) delivered some harsh words about the Boy Scouts of America, just days after his recent remarks toward the Obama administration's response to Hurricane Sandy, at a press conference he held at the National Mall this Wednesday.
"Why are you guys so prepared?" Brown questioned. "Most people spend their lives not ready for anything; they fly by the seat of their pants and they are happy."
Brown went on to say that the motto set a bad example and that if one is prepared for something today, they more than likely will not be prepared for it the very next day when it actually happens. He then proceeded to set fire to a stack of Swiss Army Knives, BSA Mess kits and sleeping bags.
Browns remarks seemed to strike a chord with the pigeons he was shouting at, who all fled shortly after the blaze was started.
Daniella Legosa, a responding D.C. Firefighter, believes that Brown would have been able to extinguish the fire quicker had he been prepared with some form of fire safety equipment. "Even a basic familiarity with the Stop, Drop and Roll procedure could have prevented the severe burns he suffered," Legosa said.
Brown is currently convalescing at Howard University Hospital's Burn unit, where a large line of people almost immediately formed to personally thank him for his response to Katrina.
