The posted article raises a lot of good questions. I understand that the police and firemen had homes and families to take care of and can't really fault them for running out on their jobs. However, it looks like the city could have offered to relocate families of essential public servants, in advance of the storm, in order to reassure them of their families' safety and allow them to function with at least a bit of peace of mind.
I don't like being a Monday morning quarter back, but it seems that a play book should have been on hand and its' plays well rehearsed prior to the "big one" which everyone in the "Big Easy" knew was going to come sooner or later.
Pinkerton left out the worst offender, the Governor of Louisana.
There was a playbook and practice according
to this here Roy.
I wonder what kind of outcome there would be from another government investigation of itself. We found a few bad apples and promoted them. Oh, and BTW, we need more funding and more laws to control the civilians. That'd be my guess anyhow.
I think we (all mankind) are too blame. When man sinned then nature became cursed. We brought it on ourselves.
Pastor's message last week, Jaun Manreno, First baptist of Lake Orion.
We bring hurricanes on ourselves?
Hmmm, thought that was warm water and cold air.
Yeah, but there wouldn't be cold air if Adam hadn't've bit.

KJ ducks the flames...
Might be too much Bible for you.
I look at this as another Pearl Habor. Plenty of folks could have taken other actions or more preceisly acted action period. But, as I read in the paper today, what can you expect when you put lawyers in charge of an emergancy department. The first thing they do is look at the regs and statutes to find out what they are permitted to do. Like at Pearl, the USAAF had their aircraft lined up to protect them from sabotage, not dispersed to protect them from an air attack.
Tim, nah - perhaps too much ridiculousness. In fact in the last two weeks, I think I am pegged out on the nonsense meter. Thanks.
Daisy - LOL!
Squire - tis all too very well known to be true. What a pity. Let us hope that like after the attack on Pearl Harbor, we learn.
Yes Squire it is of the magnitude of a Pearl Harbor I don't think it has fully set in yet.
The whole world is watching the last Super Power
on the block and how it was humbled by an act of
nature under the watchful eye of a sovereign
God. Would like to hear from our posters from
outside the United States and their take on it
And we do need to learn ..we were under the impression that a Homeland security would be
a lean and mean machine to be able to quick respond in this style of disaster and a terror
strike...now their are more questions because of
the abysmal failure of FEMA under the Homeland
I am for a 9/11 style commission that will investigate and be given power to implement ideas.
Another government investigation of itself is going to come to the same ole conclusion. Oops, we made a few mistakes and the answer to all the problems is for you to give up more liberty, accept more federal control over your lives and we need billions more tax dollars.
Individually we may learn from our mistakes but the government consistantly profits from theirs in both more money and more control over individuals.
The Bush ****** can dump on Bush all they want, and they will since they get an ****** thrill by doing so, but the fact remains Coast Guard helicopters were there on Tuesday rescuing those left behind by the "long gone mayor" while hundreds of buses set idle in a parking lot.
There were relief supplies moved to the affected states before Katrina struck but in Louisana the governor kept these from being delivered to those in need.
If you count available city buses as well as school buses there was nearly a thousand of them. So they were not used or even moved. People damaged the inside of the Superdome. That has to be paid for. Even worse yet they're going to have to buy new buses. Local incompentance.
No problem, I hear ya, just with all the speculations lately just thought a little bible injected might help. I was just saying that nature is curse since the garden and it is the sin of all mankind that causes nature to act like it does now. There will come a day when the lamb and the lion will once again be at peace and nature will not strike out as it does now.
Simply put we are all sinners and the blame goes on us not just one city. I might buy that if LA dropps off into the sea and Las Vegas gets swallowed up by a sandstorm, Hollywood gets wiped off the map ...but until then I am not jumping on the bandwagon of God punishing N.O. just for thier sins.
Old Regulars childhood
That is singing a whole lot of baloney the bus
issue has already been knocked down ...first
responders were literally flooded and swamped you
can have all the buses in the world but if you
do not have the drivers then the buses sit.
What NOLA needed was the cavalry coming from the outside and that cavalry failed them which equates
to the same people who promised to protect us
from terrorist...Bush,Brown,and Chertoff.
"You are doing a heck of a job Brownie!"
Adam's biggest problem wasn't that he bit. Adam's biggest problem was that when confronted by God, he blamed the woman for giving him the fruit, and then blamed God for giving him the woman. So began the great blame game that is such a prevalent part of sinful behavior. And we're seeing that same thing today, blame, blame, blame, finger-pointing, buck-passing.
