Five Feet High and Rising

It was a natural disaster of epic proportions. Scores dead. Thousands missing. The injured and homeless wandering the streets waiting for help that was slow to come.

The government cheese dragging their feet -- woefully unprepared for a disaster of this magnitude.

Food, water and medical supplies from around the world sitting on tarmacs and in fields – not going to those in need but going to waste.

Politicians making promises while bureaucratic red tape hampers rescue efforts.

Yeah…it might suck in Myanmar right now…but we were talking closer to home. We were talking about New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. The only difference between the BSC Generals running that country and the BSC Bush-wipes running this one is the amount of fruit salad they wear on their lapels.
