Can The U.S. "Really" Handle Another Terrorist Attack Using Katrina's Aftermath As An Example? You Decide
This past week outside the New Orleans Superdome
I'll be working here in NYC this weekend to stack shipments of disposable diapers, baby formulas, non-perishable foods and bottled water and juices that can hopefully be turned over to our government to be air dropped into New Orleans and the surrounding areas that so desperately need it, once the National Guard is further in place there.
Clearly, as been already said -- "flying" over this area in an air-conditioned Air Force One jet plane and "surveying" the damages AGAIN and AGAIN will do absolutely nothing for our fellow Americans down there who are now suffering severely in the most nightmarish conditions imaginable. Neither will the lackluster "tough talk" on call-in radio shows by the local politicians of the city of New Orleans and photo ops. It's time for nothing but solid, meaningful ACTION.
Best to all of you who will also be spending the next few days trying to get aid to people who desperately *need* it. Certainly, the bumbling misadventures and sheer lack of leadership of this past week has taught many of us the true meaning of: "Shock and Awe."
Good weekend, all. Peace.
