>>>This is humor. Right? Geez.
It's not humor that FEMA is paying for hotels this late in the game. The second letter in the acronym FEMA is Emergency - there is not an emergency any more. It's time these people took care of themselves, or, the state of LA picked up the tab.

It gets worse. There is a hotel on St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans that had been housing Katrina victims since October on FEMA's nickel. In January, the hotel decided to opt out of the FEMA program and "evict" (I hate to use that term becasue it isn't appropriate here) from their hotel.
The evacuees went to CDC got a court order and restrained the hotel from evicting them as long as FEMA was paying the bill.
