2. This is an odd forum, in some ways.
Immense outrage is expressed about the government's response to Katrina, but there are few responses to direct, personal experience of that catastrophe.

It's easier to bitch about "California Pizza Kitchen," or make a lame comparison to a few hundred illegal immigrants being arrested as opposed to an entire city being destroyed.

I'm not sure if I even have a point to make here. It's just interesting what attracts people's attention, what gets them pumped up.

Tis a very, very strange world we live within.
