A little belated, I know, but my thoughts go out to everybody caught by the disaster in the US Gulf states. It's a terible disaster that hasn't been helped by the Bush administration's complete ineptitude.
I dearly hope that the 50,000 body bags that were ordered on Tuesday 29th August won't be needed, although reports are suggesting that there may indeed be tens of thousands who perished to nature's fury.
But rather than blaming nature, the responsibility should be placed squarely on those in authority that did not get those people out who had no transport of their own.
That something like this could be allowed to happen in the world's premier democracy stinks!
