So Sad, So Wrong

I don't care who can be blamed for this. I don't care if it's Brownie, or Nagin, or Barbara Bush. I just hope whoever allowed people to return to their houses, only to find dead family members rotting in New Orleans homes, manages to do something good with the rest of his life.

Dude, there's not always someone to blame. What did you do to prevent the situation. Sometimes bad things happen and we just have to deal with it.

Well, when the searching of houses is stopped before it is completed, it IS somebody's fault. And not mine.

Remember how every ounce of rubble was sifted from the site of the WTC? That's a far cry from sending someone back into their home only to find Grandma festering in the living room. Don't you think? And don't you think that SOMEONE could and should have done something to prevent it?

It took well over a year to sift through all the WTC rubble. How long should the govt prevent people from returning to their own property? I think you need to sprinkle a little practicality into your idealism.

Emaw -

The thing is, they stopped the door-to-door search. Someone made the decision to stop searching the houses, and they never resumed. It's been almost 3 months. This isn't a case of "shit happens". This is a case of "we don't care". And that's inexcusable, IMHO.
