13. That was really sad. Those people were ready to come to help.
They could have done so much good. Bush completely blew them off, and citizens in New Orleans continued to suffer.

It's downright evil playing political games when people are in deep distress who should be helped.

HAVANA Dr. Luis Sauchay is the kind of hands-on physician you want in an emergency.

Though relatively young at 34, Sauchay has chalked up more than a decade of practicing hardship medicine.

Right out of medical school, he spent two years on the high seas, the only doctor for hundreds of fishermen aboard an industrial vessel.

During two other years, he cared for the sick and forgotten in an understaffed African clinic, treating countless cases of tuberculosis and cholera.

For the last five years, he has been the local family doctor for 200 working-class families in Havanas Prraga neighborhood.
