48. I appreciate your comments
But let's all be mindful that the government must maintain emergency services the are responsive for the whole coast. It is not a matter of conectrating resources in the best-guess scenario. Jeb and Bubba sent too much Guard into Iraq and neglected to bolster emergency managements tools, failed to build FEMA and help Red-Cross at a time when we all know that a big hurricane in the modern age can effect millions of people. After Hugo, there should have been a massive infrastructure of evacuation plans, temporay services to the needy and dislocated, emergency housing, mobile water treatment and chlorination facilities, food banks and distribution, volunteer organizations for implementation of emergency services and security needs, temporary primary education facilities for kids starting the school year, heavy equipment, search and rescue, fire containment, hazzardous cleanup, ship salaage and channel clearing, traume counselors, field communication and lost family facilities, temporary lost pet shelters...WTF!

How come nobody ever loses their jobs when these things happen!
