New Orleans

If you've got a few minutes, read this article.

Then read this one.

Am I missing something? If the president insists that we, as a country, can take care of ourselves... then why aren't we taking care of ourselves? Why are we turning down money and aid that we obviously need... since we just finished stripping that money and aid away from the place that is now a disaster area - away from the very thing that might have lessened the extent of this disaster? Can someone explain this to me in a rational way that doesn't involve the words "Iraq," "oil," or "war"? ('Cause I don't think Iraqi elections are a real comfort to the inhabitants of the Superdome at the moment...)
