Little Pinch Sulzberger's country club newspaper peddles in-crowd arrogance. Those of us who live in the real world, pay our taxes, pay our mortgages, raise our kids, and send money to Katrina relief organizations don't belong to the country club and wouldn't be welcome even if we wanted to belong.
Whether we like it or not, the Feds can't be everywhere at once. The last hurricane I was in, FEMA took 4 days to arrive (just like they always do), and were pretty useless once they got here (just like they always are). People who didn't prepare were not happy, but then people who live on the Gulf Coast KNOW that hurricane season is every year from April to November and residents better have provisions and contingency plans at the ready. As in: evacuations. BTW, Governor Blanco failed to sign the executive order declaring a state of emergency until Wednesday, nearly 48 hours after the levees were breached.
Poor doesn't make people stupid. It makes them dependent on mass transportation. Louisiana officials left that mass transportation locked up in a bus yard, and the poor people locked up in the un-provisioned SuperDome. Both got flooded.
Louisiana's people were sold out by their state and local politicians, who doubtless ran on a platform to repeal the law of cause and effect.
