    You mean like having FEMA there right after the storm instead of three days later... yeah, I'm all for that. ;)

    Everyone failed those people... from the top on down.

    NO has been in the news a lot lately with the FEMA trailers and allowing folk to stay long, and the rats at the trailers. And now this sleeze bag mayor and his total lack of leadership to fix that messed up city. Oh and I forgot about the crime rate and how it's totally out of control. NO needs to be bull dozed into the Missisippi and they should then bring in tons and tons of soil to build it higher off the ground and then rebuild. It is a total shame that our country has to look like some 3rd world hole because of a lack of leadership.

    That's simply a LIE.

    For your statement to be correct, it'd have to read:

    "Everyone in leadership of their state government failed those people - hell, those PEOPLE failed themselves to a large degree, too."

    Only the local leadership? Or does that include the people who have the real pocketbook to fix the damage... you know, the Feds.

    I agree 100% re a lack of leadership..... might be helpful if the guy responsible for FEMA's efforts knew how to do more than judge horse shows, though.

    Get a grip, luv.

    Try actually reading something that isn't propaganda... there was blame all around. It's just the ones with resources to save lives were the Feds.

    You're really dense, Jilli. (sigh). It's like me trying to explain time-travel to a monkey.

    Somebody had to be the scape goat. Hey I'm for getting these people back to repaired homes and a functional city, kind of an oxymoron since that joint has been on the take longer than the mafia has been in Sicily! But really these troubles have been there for hundreds of years, so now is the time to enact the federal worker program. You live in a temporary housing facility then if you are able you'll work, or volunteer said number hours per month until the job is finished, or you can move to neighboring states! Simple, can you imagine what Roosevelt would have done back then? Why can't that work now, hell the dems are all for government and that fits their plan.

    Who excatly are "those" people?

    Who failed the people that were told to evacuate and did?

    The failure happen years before the Katrina Hurricane hit New Orleans.
