The NY Times has a story for tomorrow (co-written by Eric Lipton, who with Ron Nixon brought you the story last Monday about where Katrina contracts are going), about the 91,000 tons of ice FEMA bought to cool food and help hurricane victims -- at a cost to taxpayers of over $100 million -- that was never delivered.

The piece leads with the charming story of a trucker who picked up 20 tons of ice in Pennsylvania, and then spent the next two weeks driving around the country (4,100 miles) on the taxpayers' dime while FEMA tried to figure out what to do with it. This is beyond incompetence.
