The wording here is pretty much perfect:
WASHINGTON - Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Mike Brown said Monday he has resigned “in the best interest of the agency and best interest of the president,” three days after losing his on-site command of the Hurricane Katrina relief effort.
“The focus has got to be on FEMA, what the people are trying to do down there,” Brown told The Associated Press.
… “I’m turning in my resignation today,” Brown said. “I think it’s in the best interest of the agency and the best interest of the president to do that and get the media focused on the good things that are going on, instead of me.”
Never mind the best interests of the hundreds of thousands of people whose lives were destroyed thanks to Brown’s and FEMA’s criminally negligent incompetence.
