This guy on the radio today was accusing people of not caring about LA, MS (Katrina dmgs). “It’s human nature,” he says. “You’re glad that it didn’t happen to you.”
I just want to kick him in the balls. Of course I care. I AM glad that it didn’t happen to me. But I DO care.
I’m pissed that he’s not bad-mouthing the news reporters that are out there. They’re cruising around with their damn cameras and satellite equipment, but are they pushing their little boats up to the rooftops and asking people if they can take them somewhere?????? NO. They’re NOT. They’re just passing by and letting them sit up there. Fuck journalism. Get them off their roofs! Are they saying, here, let me put you on T.V. so that if your family can see this, they’ll no you’re okay? NO. They’re just using their position to show their pain and misery. But they’re not doing a damn thing. Because when they’re finished, they’re going home to a dry structure and A/C, and gasoline and cars.
People have likened this to our “Tsunami” (technically a tsunami is a pacific hurricane, so they’re the same) without the body count. But is the UN or NATO here? Nope.
