I spent a couple of hours watching CNN tonight to try to absorb what is happening in New Orleans.
My heart does go out to the poeple of New Orleans. I hope that as many of them are saved as is possible.
I do not think anyone in our government OR press understands the enormity of what has happened to New Orleans. About 480,000 Americans are going to be without a place to live for at least a couple of months, and more likely several months... When do you think the schools in New Orleans will be able to take students again? Certainly not this year.
480,000 people are going to have to be re-located. Many will live with friends and relatives. The rest will have to be helped as best we can. It is going to be a mess.
I have NO DOUBT that America will open their pocketbooks and help the people of New Orleans. It will happen, you can count on it.
I cannot believe the political spin CNN is putting on this disaster. They seem to be blaming Bush.
Do not get me wrong, I do not overly care for Bush; but, this is not his fault.
This is the fault of many different groups. I think we should save as many people as we can; blame can be spread later.
What do you think?
