Louisiana is a red state. New Orleans was a blue city thus explaining Blanco and Landrieu. Vitter and Jindal represent and were voted in by RED voters. I live in the Metairie or Greater NO area and I can assure you I live in Bush country. So, people from LA do pay attention to FReepers.
I hope in the future if there is a biblical event in some of your areas I can have as much compassion as you have toward us.

Which post of mine are you referring to?
Link and quote or retraction, please.
There's a town near here called Shoals. It was severely flooded last year. I didn't hear a single person asking for money to rebuild on the floodplain.
In Missouri after the huge Mississippi floods there was a town that was wiped out. They moved to higher ground and rebuilt. No one asked for money to rebuild on the flood plain.
Bitsy, It's not that we have no compassion, it's just that it is so incredibly stupid to rebuilb NOLA where it is. The coastal lands that once protected it are gone, the city continues to sink lower every year, there is nothing beyond the french quarter (and possibly not even that) that cannot be moved or rebuilt elsewhere. NOLA is dead. If this hurricane didn't finish the job the next one will.
Truth has no compassion, it just is.
Wrong. Blanco won because of rural Louisiana racist voters.
