Sir, *PLEASE* do not misinterpret me, I am not saying the people themselves have not done enough or owe us ANYTHING.

What I am saying, is YOUR bureaucrats are making a mockery out of the monies and physical efforts and volunteer efforts that people unselfishly made under some VERY extremely harsh and rancid conditions, I am merely pleading for help (how and exactly what I am unsure), but I just know the bureaucrats are miserably fumbling the reconstruction and recovery efforts, and a lot of politically connected people are getting rich while people such as a recent episode wherein a blind woman whose home IS GONE cannot even get a FEMA trailer after repeated requests for almost a year now while others whom obviously do not need them are repeatedly offered these trailers and other aid.

It does sound as though the problem is more local as anything else. Yet Nagin, et al, were voted back in. ???
Perhaps the issue of what in LA will be restored (only to be destroyed again?) vs. what can be done to make the best of a bad situation, regroup, and rebuild in a different, better way needs to be addressed.
I know that you are frustrated and that you have been through so much. Continue to focus on what we need to do to help.
I cant come down and clean up the local politics myself, but....
Suggestions?

"What I am saying, is YOUR bureaucrats"

No sir, the problem is your bureaucrats, a coterie of insatiable grifters all the way from Leander Perez to the present with the incompetent Gov. Gramma and the Landrieu Mafia.

You're not a citizen of the US? They're not OUR bureaucrats?

I'm leaving this thread. You tell us we have to help, we have to wind our way through link after link to find out how to help, if we don't help gas prices will go up, and blind women will be homeless. It's incoherent, or at least I'm not smart enough to understand it.

I'm not sure that almost a year after the disaster FEMA should be involved any more. I'm not sure that we shouldn't cut out losses on at least part of the port capabilities. I AM sure that if New Orleans can reelect Nagin, they can kiss my enthusiastic cooperation goodbye.

My advice, free and worth every penny, is take a deep breath, wait a day, CLEARLY articulate your concerns, your argument, and your appeal, and then try again. All you've done today is make me angry.
