A Response to Dick Cheny During Katrina



From the pages of the aforementioned Oxford-American is the story behind the shouted out comment in the above video. I was always surprised that when President Bush finally showed up to tour the damaged areas caused by Katrina, or when Dick Cheney did, why someone didn't react angrily to them, after being ignored and forgotten by our government, why the press only ever shows people thanking them for their help, when they should have been asking where the help was. Maybe there was more, but the press didn't seem to care about the ones that didn't think things were going great. No one from the press even followed after Dr. Marble (the voice in the video) to ask why he did what he did.

I hate to admit it but I haven't seen When The Levees Broke yet. I need to go out and buy it, it's been on my list of things to see, but somehow falls through the cracks. I'll buy Mr. Marble a second round.

Oh man, that is one gut wrenching show. I was furious when I was home sick watching CNN during Katrina. Watching that made me wish for an unfortunate Air Force 1 incident.
