At the risk of starting a big argument, I wanted to find out how everyone else felt about how everything was handled in the aftermath of the Hurricane. I think the Feds were slow in reacting, but when you talk about the storms that were created by the Hurricane, and the damage to roads, bridges, etc and the lack of fuel to boot (not to mention numerous other complications) is somewhat understandable. I think the State of Louisiana and the City of New Orleans bear much responsibility as well for not having better evacuation plans in place. But what do you do with so many people that refuse to leave??? Lot of intelligent people on this board; wanted to see how others felt about it. Regardless of your stance, I hope everyone is giving to the Red Cross or some other aid organization.
