What's The Story On This Guy 'Rocky' That's Driving A FEMA Trailer To...
Washington D.C. to meet with *. I can't determine if he is pro or anti *. He says he wants to thank the pResident - but it sure sounds very sarcastic to me. What is his story and angle?

1. Fairly positive towards Bush

Caravan leaves Chalmette, on way to Washington, DC

Against a backdrop of high fives, pats on the back and high school band members playing the theme from "Rocky,'' a caravan left Chalmette this morning on a journey to the nation's capital to bring attention to the plight of Hurricane Katrina victims.

Rockey Vaccarella of Meraux is towing an "honorary'' FEMA trailer to Washington, D.C., where he says he will try to dine with President Bush.

"This isn't negative,'' Vaccarella said as the caravan prepared to leave. "I want to thank him. But I also want to tell him please don't forget about us - the job's not done.''

Vaccarella, who now lives in a FEMA trailer outside his flooded home, knows that might be un uphill battle, but, he said, "We'll do the best we can.''

The caravan includes several vehicles, a couple of motorcycles and a trailer Vaccarella borrowed from a friend. He said federal regulations prevented him from towing an actual FEMA trailer.

2. I saw an interview with him. It seems that he is just
trying to bring attention and focus back to the ongoing problems.

He said he is grateful for the help he got but so much more help is needed.
