as much as it burned my ass that we got no relief for five days after katrina ,
the fact that i am high and dry in gentilly can not be enjoyed with what im seeing just south of me.
plaqumines , grand isle , la fourche , and terribone. are in major pain and a mere 90 min ride from my house.
why are they waiting for water?
why isnt this shouted from the rooftops like new orleans was?
we are in a heap of shit as a country when one group becomes more important over another.
also when the powers that be can divide and conquer us.
