Have you seen the latest figure on Yahoo about Katrina? Someone is suing the govt for $3quatrillion dollars! Get real. I feel for your suffering and loss but isn't this just a sign of how ridiculous this has gotten? That's more than the entire US product for a year! Oh so we're supposed to give 1 person more than the rest of the entire US population?!!! How stupid is that?!

I never have understood the penchanct for balming the government anyhow! Ok yes they levy's weren't built properly, etc but they don't control the weather and when an F-5 hurricane is bearing down on you only the foolish stay in a city that's built below sea level! If anything they should be suing the city of New Orleans for not having a better evacuation plan, the mayor for being an idiot who didn't get things going etc. TX showed it could be done better.

It saddens me that American's have reached the point where rather than help each other, help themselves they would rather play the blame and pity me game.
