Gluttony: New Orleans

With all the news of the SCOTUS nomination, as well as the desire to bury good news, we might have missed this:

Officials ended their door-to-door sweep for corpses finding far fewer bodies than once feared and school children returned to classes as New Orleans revved up efforts to recover from Hurricane Katrina.
Good news all.
The search for Katrina victims ended in Louisiana with a death toll at 964, substantially less than the 10,000 victims some officials feared.
The question is will these officials be held accountable for their hyperbole? We know that the Sheppard Smiths and Jerry Rivers of the world will not, so I guess it is a stretch to expect that elected officials will get theirs.
