Why should anyone be concerned about the people who live in NO?
They CHOOSE to live below sea level. They saw what happened after katrina, yet they decided to stay anyways. To hell with them.

Hmm.. so, what are *you* doing to help out? All I see is that you are expecting from and blaming the government to do the dirty work that I doubt you are willing to do yourself.
Being the hypocritical bitch I am, will be housing some of my friend's family who may not have had the sense to stay out, but at least had the sense to get out.
And the whole karma schpill you gave shows you are lacking that grasp of reality that I referred to earlier. If it is about karma, then I guess we could say that these ppl must be paying for something they did which, in that case, they deserve even less pity.
However, I have a better grasp of reality and can see that nature doesn't pick and choose based on what ppl have done in their lives. To think otherwise is silly.

If Gustav makes a direct hit on New Orleans, is it time to let Mother Nature reclaim the entire Mississippi Delta region?
If not, is that something you might ever consider?
With the threat of globalwarming and the onslaught of more frequent and stronger storms, does it make any sense to continue to rebuild the region? When does apathy set in? Apathy towards rebuilding, apathy towards giving charity to those that stay, apathy towards sending tax dollars which could be used elsewhere.
I personally feel it is time to let New Orleans slip quietly underwater and meet the ssame fate as Atlantis. That is my two cents just wondering if anyone has reached the same conclusion or quickly heading that way.
