Well, I think the US certainly dropped the ball to help the victims of Katrina. I cannot imagine having to live in those horrible conditions while in the richest country of the world.

At the same time, I cannot sympathize with those who insisting on staying after the mayor stated "This is the storm we've all feared". Although I know some people did not have the means to leave, it would have been nice if they loaded up a bunch of buses and got those people the heck out of there! And why didn't they open up the freeway in the opposite direction for people to leave?? Certainly no one was coming IN to town!
