The NO post in SF...

How can this be happening? I think was the statement I saw in there.

Easy

#1. Gut FEMA, (it's an entitlement program and should be privatized)
#2. Put your buddy, (and former campaign manager), with NO emergency
preparedness experience in there, and then when he leaves after a few
months, he can put his buddy in as the head of it, (who also has no
experience)
#3. Don't spend the money to upgrade and fix the levees
#4. Don't spend the money to evacuate people, (they can evacuate with
their own means)
#5. etc.

And please moderators, end this discussion now...:)

But really, could this whole nightmare-ish horror have been handled
any worse by the people involved? How many BILLIONS of dollars is this
going to cost? How many THOUSANDS of lives will end up being lost? How
many lives are going to be absolutely screwed by this? It's pretty
unbelievable how quickly anarchy can descend upon us...

 IOW, "It's all George Bush's fault."
 Of course, if a Democrat had been in charge, everything would have been 
taken care of by Monday afternoon and no one would have died.
 Personally, I think that a lot of the critics have some sort of notion that 
New Orleans should have had their problems solved within a couple of hours, 
that this was something like a TV movie. Real life doesn't work that way. 
This was an unprecedented disaster. Even the best plans were untried and 
bound to have shortcomings. The responsibilities for preparation and relief 
are not entirely federal, either.
 Someone on the alt.obituaries newsgroup wrote a good piece decrying the 
attitude that this is some unique situation as far as response times. 
 Anyway, here's the comments (scroll down to comment 17):
*http://tinyurl.com/8e6eg*
 The logistics involved in this disaster are a nightmare. New Orleans is 
like an island. You can't just truck massive amounts of things there. People 
cannot get to central distribution points. The Red Cross and National Guard 
are not set up to make door-to-door deliveries. There is no easy way to 
solve the problems.

 whoa, Brad. I love ya ta death, bra (as the kids say these days...right?), 
but you can't compare NYC to NO. They are vastly different geographically 
(how many millions of people live within 3 hours of each Manhattan vs. New 
Orleans), the disasters are drastically different (NYC was a one-time, very 
localized event...NO is a continued disaster, over hundreds(thousands?) of 
acres of land....one was a man-made act of destruction, the other a 
multi-fronted assault from the forces of nature), and the basic psychology 
of the events are different (NYC gave us an ENEMY...someone to blame, 
someone to hate...with NO there's just the inevitability of nature, which 
perhaps may explain part of the left-wing manhunt going on). Comparing the 
NO disaster to the NYC attacks does a disservice the victims of Hurricane 
Katrina. NYC was back up and running in no time (relatively speaking). New 
Orleans may never exist again (I like parentheses). Comparing the two is 
like comparing apples and orangutans.

I hear they share 98% of the same DNA.

And neither can make a decent cup of coffee.
