RE: Evacuation Order

Carey:* It is nice to see some hands on experience to counter the "nothing is good nonsense" that regularly appears on this subject.

A big part of this "Katrina" issue is that like Bangladesh, neither the local governments or inhabitants are willing to step out of 4th stage denial and recognize the reality and hazards of gulf coast living.

And when a big blow (inevitably) appears, it is the federal government's job to*take responsibiilty. "Dear Feds - stay out of my life - oops, dear Feds help me the wind is blowing my house away." Amazing logic!
