What exactly would you have done differently?
(not a smarta$$ question. I'm inviting response to
how things could have been done better)
Example - the 'emergency evacuation plan' that the governor had
was obviously inadequate. When the state told people to 'get out'
.... there should have been mass transportation available for
those who couldn't. (tran, bus, whatever).
The evacuation plan (if there was one), stunk.
But there also is the fact that MANY people refused to go.
These weren't left to fend for themselves. They are still
refusing to leave. Education to help people understand to
leave is vital.
BTW - slightly off topic but here goes ...
.... the snipers who are shooting at the doctors and
nurses as they evacuate ill people ... and the snipers who
are shooting at police ... and the snipers who are shooting
at engineers as they try to fix the levy .... they are just as
bad as the terrorist insurgents in Iraq. Both the insurgents
and the snipers in Louisiana WANT chaos so that they can
have power and control over certain areas.
