great thread. picking up on juro's comments, it's difficult to fathom just how inept the government's response haS been particularly in light of the vast history of warnings that new orleans is so vulnerable to just such a catastrophe and the multitude of time in which katrina was threatenning. i can't help but wonder as to why the government did not put any meaningful assets in place in the days prior to katrina striking especially when the worse was contemplaed. are they that out of touch? scary. what does this say about our leaders and their decisions and analytical process? i guess i'm ranting a bit but it's mind boggling
