Well, this is just another sign that FEMA is incapable of performing its job. The whole organization needs to be scrapped and revamped from the
bottom up. The poor people living in tents and hotel rooms since the hurricane, could have been living in these.
Rep. Mike Ross (D-Ark.), a graduate of Hope High School, asked that question as he toured the airport Thursday with FEMA officials. "It cost $431
million and they're all sitting there, 75% of them literally parked in a cow pasture," Ross said in a telephone interview. "They are brand-new, all
totally furnished, and yet people have been living in tents for five months in a row. It just makes you sick to your stomach."
