I never saw any Headlines about the folks in Iowa complaining about the floods.They all seemed to help out each other.
I think the Mayor of New Orleans hit the nail on the head when he said "GET OUT Now". Nobody but God knows how bad a storm is going to be.
I can't believe people would want to return so fast after the storm when there is no power and sewer. At least wait until the city gets gets the basics up before you go back.
Come on people give credit where it's do instead of bad mouthing the people that saved your lives.
