With the news on the AWOL policeman being fired yesterday it reminded me of the chief who resigned shortly after Katrina without much explanation.

Obviously there was an incredibale amount of stress involved but he left so soon after .......... did we ever find out why?

It's an unusual concept in today's political scene but he took responsibility for the poor performance of the government services he administered and resigned.

Or he was probably goinng to be fired anyway and there was not much point trying to fight it.

I don't really find it responsable to quit after you screwed something up. That just gets you out of fixing the mess. It is only responsable if saves people the trouble of firing you.

I agree .............. falling on you sword is one thing but he quit way too early unless he personally did something terribly wrong or just irresponsibly decided to say "fuck it!"
