Oh, but they cared.
Part of it was the cost of Irene’s state mandated evacuations (those payments are still outstanding).
They gambled and now are saying they never said not to evacuate.
Yeah...they cared enough to get these people to fill out absentee ballots. I’m finding it hard nowdays to give a crap what happens up north in the wake of the pre-election, much-hyped “Sandy”. Go ask Obama for help.
