This Speaks To The Heart Of The Katrina Problem

A friend of mine at work e-mailed this article to me. After reading it, I believed it summed up how I felt about all the lawlessness in New Orleans. Here's an excerpt from the a TIA Daily Article written by Robert Tracinski:

The man-made disaster is not an inadequate or incompetent response by federal relief agencies, and it was not directly caused by Hurricane Katrina. This is where just about every newspaper and television channel has gotten the story wrong.

The man-made disaster we are now witnessing in New Orleans did not happen over four days last week. It happened over the past four decades. Hurricane Katrina merely exposed it to public view.

This is well worth the read.
