My thoughts go out to not only those who died in Hurricane Katrina but to the thousands of emergency workers who are working around the clock with out little praise and even more criticism from those leaders above them.
I especially feel for the family's of the police officers in the area, considering most would have been on duty with cancelled rest days and cancelled vacations to be on stand by for the Hurricane and who now 2 weeks are the event are probably the most crabby and stressed out officers left hanging around , and I cant really blame those who quit the job to look after there own families.
What with the national guard now in the region "helping" the effort
The whole issue of how this emergency has been handled has shown that there is no coordination or planning for major disaster in the Us, and this is two years after 9/11. It beggars belief.
What bugs me even more is the flippant remark from a FEMA official about the dead bodies floating about is " the dead cant get any more dead we are here to save the living" well Mr FEMA muppet two weeks after Katrina hit you should be at least removing the bodies so they don't INFECT THE AREA and then you will not have a major health hazard that is now looming in the not so distant future.
Don't even get me started on how crap the planning was / is / continues to be .
The phrase could not organize a piss up in a brewery comes to mind!
