Roll Up the Sleeves

This is an e-mail sent by Sharon Worthy, who I believe was press secretary for Michael Brown of FEMA, on September 4, 2005:

From: Worthy, Sharon < e-mail redacted >
Sent: Sunday, September 04, 2005 10:17 AM
To: michael.d.brown < e-mail redacted >
Subject: Your shirt

Please roll up the sleeves of your shirt…all shirts. Even the president rolled up his sleeves to just below the elbow.

In this crises and on TV you just need to look more hard-working…ROLL UP THE SLEEVES!

Just released on as a PDF.

  2. Oh man, that makes me so sick. Even more sick is that George W Bush got his memo as his sleeves were all rolled up. Prick.
