There have been even more disturbing articles recently about the government's response to Hurricane Katrina. The most recent are news stories and the video of the President being briefed on the potential impact of the coming hurricane (click here to view the tape).
Another article is about how FEMA is struggling to fill vacancies, with only 3 months to hurricane season. In past posts I have commented on the government's response to the hurricane and it remains troubling how each level of government failed to react adequately to the situation. In addition, it seems that those same leaders are ignoring one of the biggest problems that was there before the storm--the absolute poverty that so many people had to deal with everyday, which largely prevented many of them from leaving before the storm hit.
