No help, no food, no water – madness.

“New Orleans is in utter chaos”:http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/hurricane_katrina;_ylt=AnJD_2nAkz_gYy_5_IA_tO2s0NUE;_ylu=X3oDMTA2Z2szazkxBHNlYwN0bQ–.
I’m all for optimism, but it’s not clear to me that Federal officials are willing to back up all that talk. When even those in charge of New Orleans lose hope and cry for help, there can be no deeper desperation. What does it say when the richest nation in the world cannot apparently amass its resources for its own people? What example is this?

My thoughts are ever with the people of New Orleans and its surrounding cities and towns. May you get the relief you deserve, the relief you’ve been promised, soon. And may reason prevail over the madness that is spreading.
