    I saw this and you are right. Most the people stuck in N.O. are low income families who couldn’t afford to leave. But it is not necessarily for lack of car. The question is, where do they go? Them and there whole extended families live in the area.

    Now that that has been said, think about how many people tried to ride out the storm. I know there are a lot of poor in that area but you can’t tell me that there are THAT many. A good portion of those people trapped there were stubborn/ignorant/stupid/whatever and underestimated the impact of the storm. My cold heart does not feel nearly as sorry for them, as they just make it more difficult to help the actualy helpless.

    So what would Mr. R suggest people with no money, no car, and no resources do when a hurricane hits? Perhaps the question is why didn’t the authorities who are aware of this problem have absolutely no contingency plan to get these people out.
