Just watched Spike Lee's documentary on HBO concerning Hurricane Katrina. I know we talked about this at great lengths, but after seeing this again I just had to make comment. This injustice of our government has to be the biggest embarrassment since the mass racial killings in our early history. I'm not saying this was racially motivated, but clearly, when the biggest natural disasters in our life time happens and the President of the United States doesn't respond for four days, that's horrific. The one bright spot concerning any agency was the Coast Guard. Who ever was in charge, said the heck with regulations (pilots are required to fly a max. of 8 hrs) and those helicopters flew for up to 16 straight hours. This was life and death, and in those times, you break the rules. A thing Bush knows about, sadly this wasn't on his agenda. I do recall someone not/or being delayed a promotion from the Coast Guard after Katrina. That would be par for the course. Of course, Katrina is not over, there are trailers sitting empty and FEMA has not been tested lately. Just a heck-of-a-job.
