Secret Government?

One thing is for sure, in the aftermath and devastation of Hurricane Katrina we can truly dispel the notions of the X Files and right wing militias that FEMA was secretly trying to take over the country and the world. What a crock of hilarious shit. These people couldn't take control over their own orgasm.

From distributing only four or five trailers to the many, many thousands of homeless people in this city or to using a separate company to distribute the keys to these same trailers who then never even show up to deliver the keys thereby forcing people to break into their own trailers, it is painfully obvious that this government agency is quite simply idiotic.

In fact, it is outrageously obvious that we the people of New Orleans are being left to hang by this government period.

We are struggling to rebuild, but while we try and rebuild our homes and businesses, the government dallies over red tape, insurance agencies will not answer phone calls, and other cities stripmine us of our businesses.

This is not an opportunity for other cities to grow. We're your fucking neighbors and countrymen for Christ's sake. We need help to stand back up.

This country is spending 8 billion dollars a MONTH in Iraq, yet bickers about whether or not to even help us to get street lights up and running - barely a seventh of the city has electricity.

Please write your senators and congressmen and plead for them to help us to rebuild our levees our city and our faith in this country.

Here's a great site where you can send letters to everyone (Pres, Senators, Congress, etc.). There is an option to create public soapbox letters.

If you come across any choice news articles reflecting governmental stalls and such that sum up the situation succinctly, please post the links. They can then be attached to governmental correspondence to illustrate the point.

I am interested in coming in Jan/Feb to do whatever it is I can do. I can spend about a week. What are my options? How could my time be most useful? I've found your blog to be very "up close and personal". My Sis lived there while going to school and I visited a few times. I loved NOLA and want to see it come back. The devestation is mind blowing and I just want to help in any way I can. I admire what you've done, and I think you should publish a book.
