9. Well if we end up spending federal
dollars on it's rebuilding then it would effect me through taxes.

Also we're kind of a like, one country you know? So people should care about what goes on in other states.

For instance, did you have this "mind your own business, it's not in my state so why should I bother to care?" attitude during katrina?

People put way to much of their pride in to believing the spot where they live is the greatest on earth and that it will continue forever to be that great. It's a city, a place where people go to work, nothing more. The jobs are gone, so move on. People didn't move their initially because they just loved how awesome the city was, they moved their because there was work. Period, end of story.
