Others have already said it better, and probably more succinctly than I can or will, but WHAT the fuck is going on?!

HOW is the richest, most powerful nation in the world unable to respond to the disaster which is the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina?

WHY are there not massive amounts of troops keeping order and helping to evacuate and/or provide food and water for these people?

WHEN will the government get its act together and HELP THESE PEOPLE?

WHO will take the lead, and take control of this situation?

Everyone needs to quit the political blame game and get focused. People are literally dropping dead. When is relief coming? When are people who, again, are literally dropping dead, going to be evacuated? Why can the news media travel in and out of New Orleans, but people at the convention center can't get a cookie or a drink of water?

I'm afraid that donating to the Red Cross is not enough, my friends. We need to be calling our Senators and Representatives -- even the White House -- and DEMANDING that the Gulf Coast area does not turn into a third world country, televised for all to watch.
