Nero Fiddled

On the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina there have been a number of documentaries about the storm and subsequent tradgedy in New Orleans. Every time I see one of these it just brings to mind the thoughts that went through my head at the time. How come it took five days for the federal government to get aid to people in New Orleans when we managed to get aid half way around to the world to aid the victims of the tidal wave in two days? I don't know, but when the President flies over a scene of devastation like the one in New Orleans and can only remark about how much he used to party there during his younger days, I can't help but think that something is horrendously wrong.
