The U.S. government requested emergency food rations for Hurricane Katrina victims. But, after the United Kingdom airlifted 400,000 daily rations, our government would not distribute the food for five days. (Thanks to dr_scott for the original cheery blog bit on this travesty that occurred September 5 -10th.)
President Bush and his administration are simply too comfortable to understand real life. The concept of the life-or-death emergency need for food apparently is one which apparently so foreign to them that they just cannot deal.
How many generations back is Marie Antoinette in Bush’s ancestry, anyway?
