RE: Evacuation Order

No need to apologize for your statement. I did recognize your intended humor, and in fact appreciated the laugh. It was anothers rant that inspired me to comment.
There are many at fault for the Katrina era mistakes of FEMA, including local government, state government, and everyone including myself. We are all human beings doing the best we can. What I can't tolerate is the inane, continuing rants at anything not of their own creation.
The good news is that the Post Katrina Reform Act will result in an organization that serves us better than it ever has. The response to Hurricane Ike, even with it's faults is far ahead of the Katrina/Rita efforts. Much faster than any I have seen. I was flying to Texas the day after the storm. In the past it would have been two weeks later.
Thanks, Carey
