Dear Trad:

One only needs to look at the most recent history in Hurricane relief 
efforts and Fema and National Government motivation and delivery of 
help to Florida and even 9ll in New York, to see clearly the gross 
difference in circumstances.  This is a catastrophic boondoggle of the 
feds off on vacation from the Top down.

Proves once again that folks with better education and common sense 
should know better than to ever trust the Government to take care of 
them or solve their problems in everyday life.

Sadly but true,

Tom Wiggins

   hello list-

I see that political viewpoints are starting to creep into the New 
discussions. This is unfortunate. There are some who feel that 
should  rise to every occasion, like the victim briefly interviewed by 
the TV
who  complained that he had run out of cigarettes.
I am reminded that the London authorities were unable to extract 
victims  for
several days, with a far smaller problem to deal with.

Looting and worse has broken out after every natural and man-made  
Remember Watts some years ago?  Some of this hindered the rescue  
efforts. I
recall reading of the  looting problem in San Francisco many  years ago 
was quickly ended  when the police shot dead a few looters.  We don't 
do that

There magnitude of the disaster was too great for the resources of the  
or even the state. Mobilization of national resources always takes a 
lot  of
time. New Orleans was a disaster waiting to happen. Unfortunately there 
be others. I guess it is human nature to blame those in authority .
