Day 534: Preparedness

(or the lack thereof): Karen’s flood-recovering neighborhood lost eight houses to the tornado. When she called Nagin’s office to ask who is coordinating the tornado recovery in New Orleans and her area, his office said, “I don’t know.”

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Blakely’s in charge. As an example for Ashley’s post, our little group of bloggers got more communicated and done today in the wake of the tornado than anyone on that recovery team. We’re unpaid, multi-tasking and definitely not in charge.

Appalling. What a great town – what cock-ups of administrators. For that matter, what a great country …
