"A National Disgrace"

Nero fiddled while Rome burned.

George cried "Let them eat cake!" and Condi shopped while New Orleans drowned.

If this was a nor'easter that caused the Long Island Sound to flood Greenwich, Larchmont, and Rye, you can bet your ass that the federal government would have had people in there within hours. Because, after all, those are towns with rich white people, and everyone knows that a rich white people's lives are more valuable than lots of poor black people.

Face it, folks, you can dance, dance, dance around this part of the issue, but poverty and race (unfortunately the two are married in this country) ARE an issue here.
