Do you think WLTX would spend this much time on a poor family who had their trailer turned over? Of course not. This story has the right mix to attract viewers. And what exactly is the fund to be used for? Are they not fully insured? As in full replacement cost? Sounds all a little too misleading. I don't fault the family, but the news media and others...

The news media is something else, they are so quick to post... oh nevermind.

I'm just curious if the military grants leave for everyone whose home is affected by weather? I thought it was normally just if there was a death in the immediate family. Can someone give me some information on how this is normally handled? Also, why is there a fund set up for these people but not for the other 80 or so these tornados hit?
