Hurricane KATRINA

Oilrig_katrina I can't believe what I am hearing on the news at the moment. About a week ago I remember Mayor Ray Nagin of New Orleans saying people should leave the city as it was about to be hit by a hurricane..

He wasn't wrong. The damage and the misery inflicted is immense.

Now you would have thought that Bush and the government would have been ready to declare the whole area as PRIORITY NUMBER ONE and start getting aid to his own citizens who are in dire need in the Southern States. But he hasn't.

Now Mayor Negin is furious and rightly so.. read the transcript of his interview on CNN here...
