Message:  Amen Brother Ron!

You have said what needed to be said regarding the actions of our elected (?) leaders. There is no question that the people of this country will do whatever they can to help, as they always have.

The BIG QUESTION is why our leaders let this happen. They had at least four days before the storm hit to get people out. They knew that this could turn into a class 4 or 5 storm. They knew that there were at least 175,000 poor people in New Orleans that had no way to leave on their own.
They knew that Mr. Bush had cut funds that had been approved to improve the levys that protected New Orleans so he could pay for His war and His tax cuts for his wealthy friends. They knew what was going to happen and they let four days go by without doing a damn thing!

Thank you Ron...there is one honest newsman left in this country who's not afraid to tell the truth....and his name is Lyons!
