I am guilty of seeing "FEMA" and "hurricane" and immediately focusing on New Orleans and responding based upon the anger that I feel toward the political leaders in N.O. and in Louisiana who constantly tell me that I can never do enough for N.O. and those "victims". I meant you or honest people no offense.

That's okay. We feel the same way most of the time too. It's like Rita did not happen. As far as damage goes Rita damaged the infrastructure more than Katrina over a greater area. The *entire* electrical grid had to be rebuilt in SE Texas and SWLA.

It's really a shame that the media quickly forgot us and went back to the shenanigans of NOLA. Our mayor addressed the evacuation plans about a week after Katrina when we had thousands upon thousands of evacuees without transportation. That was a good thing because in two weeks we had to put them into place.

Randy Roach was smooth in getting rid of our Katrina evacuees too. After Rita slammed us he basically said not to come back because there were no services available. If they left their belongings they would be sent wherever they were. Granted there are still a few here but they are mostly working in the area.
