AD, you do make some good points, but I disagree with others. Coast Guard helicopters are dropping food and water because they can only take one or two people out at at time. They need bigger help.

And on top of it, the restless natives are SHOOTING at rescuers and contractors that are trying to fix the levees?

I think it'* going to get worse there.

Regardless, this forum has several policies and guidelines, which Steve violated. Then he posted this topic in the lounge, when he knew better. I'm not going to go into details due to privacy, but there'* alot more to this than meets the public eye.

i do have a small rant but its a positive rant most people cant even think about whats going on there or even understand most people try to say its about race which i think is wrong TOTALLY wrong everyone knew it was coming and everyone knew that if a storm hit that city it would be devastating i mean instead of tryin to figure out whos to blame why not everyone help out and try to prevent this from happening again rebuild rebuild rebuild its not like it hasnt happen b 4 i mean jus help each other out that all a few people will no doubt act an A$$ thats almost anywhere but people really need to stop cryin racists believe me i am on BOTH SIDES OF RACISTS REMARKS but i dont let that bother me i continue loving ALL HUMAN BEINGS as equal thats what it all comes down 2

After a disaster, we often look for things that may have predicted what was coming, and if it could have been prevented. Here'* an interesting article from National Geographic. I apologize ahead of time if most have already seen it.

http://www3.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/0410/feature5/

We've had about 600 refugees housed here in G.R. The Red Cross is asking for 2 things...time or money...at least around here. They are letting other agencies handle the clothing and food areas.

This topic is straying off topic, but I think that'* a good thing right now.

Rebuilding would be stupid. It will happen again. And I think the main reason the help was late, is that the major flooding didn't happen until long AFTER the hurricane passed by, and they thought they were over the worst of it.

The port of New Orleans is very important to the US economy, so I'm sure some rebuilding will take place, but honestly, that city needs to be RAISED about 20 feet higher. I doubt more than half the former residents will ever move back.

I heard rumblings that Europe was sending gasoline, too. Since 1/4 of ours comes from the gulf and through that port.

Of course, the Hurricane wiped out probably 1/4 of the cars that BURN that fuel.....
