I feel sick thinking about Katrina
Thankfully the evacuation effort has kicked in and is performing much better it seems.
But there is no excuse for allowing so many to rot.
This whole scenario has reminded me of watching the Columbine shooting live on TV. All the cops hugged the walls outside and peeked around the corners while the students ran by them. I was shouting at the television "Go-go-go! Breach! Get in there you idiots! People are dying!"
But they didn't. In today's world, force protection supercedes innocent protection.
When innocent people are dying, you have to take risks. To do otherwise is dereliction of duty.
