Katrina

A coisa mais sensata que li sobre o Nova Orleans e o Katrina foi por acaso, clicando de blog em blog até chegar ao site de um Senador norte-americano, democrata, Barack Obama:

Os desabrigados de Nova Orleans não foram abandonados ao Katrina. Eles foram abandonados muito tempo antes, simplesmente não foram levados em consideração pelas autoridades encarregadas de situações como essa. ...whoever was in charge of planning and preparing for the worst case scenario appeared to assume that every American has the capacity to load up their family in an SUV, fill it up with $100 worth of gasoline, stick some bottled water in the trunk, and use a credit card to check in to a hotel on safe ground. I see no evidence of active malice [refere-se à acusação de racismo na demora das autoridades], but I see a continuation of passive indifference on the part of our government towards the least of these.

ps: Sim, eu comemorei o resgate de Oliver

ps 2: O Barnabé voltou, metendo o pau em "comunas" que comemoram tragédias americanas. Lembram-me colegas na UnB, até professores, mal escondendo o sorriso ao dizer que o 11 de setembro foi merecido...triste, triste.

The postings read like sad, short stories offering intimate glimpses into the lives of strangers ... More than 5,400 items about missing people were posted in a 24-hour period on NOLA.com, a Web site run in conjunction with The Times-Picayune newspaper of New Orleans.

Oi,

Concordo totalmente com o fato de aquela região ter sido abandonada há muito tempo.. Dificilmente o Katrina teria causado o mesmo estrago, ou a ajuda teria sido tão desastrosa no caso de um desastre destes ocorrer em uma área mais rica e brnaca dos EUA...

Só espero que o novo furacão não cause estragos...
