Where Are The Buses?
In a parking lot, in New Orleans.
Via Drudge who seems to be the first one asking how many of the poor, the very young and disabled, could have been moved out of New Orleans with that fleet, while the highways were still open and the streets dry and unobstructed?
I’ve been listening to Canadian talk show host Charles Adler and others today while I work. The lack of attention on cases of negligence of those civic officials charged with the first line of defense is predictable. In their world, the only politician alive in America is George W. Bush.
These know-it-all Canadian media pundits remind us that America is the wealthiest country in the world, criticize the delay in federal assets getting to the storm victims, raise the opportunistic hot button of racism – but while they’re at it, neglect to share with their audience which fingers they’d snap.
And before you answer in their defense, here’s another question to ponder – if you believe the only factor lacking is federal will and organization.
Where are the lawyers?
Heard of any class-action suits?
Me either. That – more than any shortage of personnel carriers or rescue helicopters – should tell us everything we need to know about how difficult it is to access New Orleans.
