Katrina 2

New Orleans still exists but that is one of the few good things that can be said in the aftermath of this hurricane. The other one is the willingness of others to help. If you would like to, you can contribute money to the Red Cross. Noah's Wish takes care of the nonhuman critters in disaster areas.

But not in this particular disaster area: Before Katrina George Bush tried to slash the funding of the New Orleans district of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. He also started a war in Iraq which absorbed many of the troops that could have helped with the rescue operations after Katrina.
