I have to say that I am absolutely appalled at the dismal response from the US Federal government in their handling of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
If my government representatives think they are getting away scott-free, they'd better think again. The day of reckoning is coming. They were caught with their pants down, and now they are going to have to face the music, and right now, it's Chopin's Funeral March.
I also want to send a message to the US military: you people are incompetent. Change of leadership is in order. You should have been the first on site, with all the resources you can muster, and then some. I don't care if you have to break the law to save lives: saving lives is what we pay you to do. You're not earning your paycheck.
Mr. President: The people of the United States are expecting you to drop everything else and personally take the lead. If you can't, then you're just a sorry politician, and you need to go home in shame.
I fear for the Republic.
Everybody else: lay off the gas pedal.
