29. Why shouldn't it?
The comparison being made is of the deliberate obstructionism by those charged with (or who have assumed) the responsibility for those affected.

The victims of Katrina were simply more fortunate in having building codes that ensured that some structures remained standing for shelter, well made roads by which they could escape and hypermarts full of food. They had at least some access to the trappings of civilisation.
