I still think it is a sad indictment of the American Government that there has still been so little progress with the clean up 6 months on from Katrina. Stories of the waits for temporary homes (FEMA Trailers) abound. One family waited 5 months then, on an unplanned visit to their devastated home, they found a brand new FEMA trailer home beside it. It had been there 3 weeks but nobody had notified them. Now they have a trailer but still don't have keys to get into it. Just a tad dissapointing IMHO.
Yeh, and some objected to their continuing to celebrate Mardi Gras, when the infrastructure still needs rebuilding, but, imho, the morale comes before the infrastructure, and vive le morale, l'esprit, or whatever!!! Sure, they had to re-route a few floats from their traditional inner-city routes, but wtf? The show must go on!!! ;-))
Looks pretty flash from this photo, huh ? And Paul Future has gone off to the Mardi Gras in Sydney. Lucky duck !
