    Q Stanley, why do you define Hurricane Katrina as negligent homicide?

    Yes, the federal government led by President Bush, the Louisiana government led by Governor Blanco, and the New Orleans government led by Mayor Nagin all performed horribly in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

    And when the day comes there are terrorist attacks in multiple cities across America, we can expect it will be every man or woman for his or herself. That's the lesson I learned from it all.

    Just as long as the rich and powerful are protected, the rest of us can hang out to dry, so to speak.

    And the biggest failure in this debocle was Mayor Ray Nagen.

    I can't shake the image of all those unused buses sitting in flood waters.

    If there are to be negligent homicide charges, they have to begin with Mayor Nagin. He failed utterly to institute the city's own plans as the first responder in times of disaster.
