I don’t watch TV news, as it depresses me, and then I can’t do anything. So I listened to radio news about New Orleans. It was depressing, too. Generations had only watched as the city sunk below the river level.┬áIn a country 99% above sea level, people were allowed to live in danger. No one had responsibility for all the levees, and no one levee had only one responsible party.

Evacuating New Orleans days ahead of time would have cost about $7 million, and if the hurricane past by, the mayor would have been crucified. After the storm, the finger-pointing started, and was not a model of maturity or accuracy. And locally, drug gangs were NOT setting a good example of people pulling together in a very tough time. On disability income, all I could do was create a cartoon and go on with my life.
