First we have a post by a seemingly unhappy, unfulfilled individual entitled "Cutting Through the Katrina Krapola"
Written by Gerard Vanderleun, whom one blogger describes as " is an ugly man with an ugly soul ". That blogger seems to have hit the nail on the head.
In his latest diatribe against New Orleans, Gerard goes on and on and on using ideas that seem to come from the black hole where his heart may or may not have been. His commentors share the reign of SOTW for their input as well (see some below) Some excerpts:
I've considered the matter of New Orleans carefully.
I've weighed the never-ending, and now maudlin, saccharine suffering of its people against my now limitless cache of compassion fatigue. They have been found wanting.
To be fair and just, here's what I propose we give New Orleans from this day forward. Nothing. Niente. Zip. Zero. Nada. And a full-scale barium enema just for asking for one more thin dime. Did you send money to this barrage of bozos? I did and I want it back. With interest.
If that doesn't set the hair on the back of your neck to a stand, some of the comments from his readers will...
Wouldn't it be worth it in the end if we could somehow turn this Democrat-controlled city into an ally in the war on terror?

Maybe it's time for a new t-shirt:
with the Super Dome and a mushroom cloud.

It's time these lazy thugs got off their bottom heavy behinds and did for themselves instead of wanting everyone else to do for them...talk about a microcosm of the "nanny state" in action...

Real Americans are not money grubbing leeches that are too useless to earn their own keep.
Having been to NO, I see nothing worth keeping.
Blow the levees and let the River wash the filth away.

It goes on and on, but you get the picture. Now there are responses by NOLA bloggers and others who take offense to this article, but when you're dealing with
people as closed minded as those above, it's not worth the effort to try to show them the error in their small-minded thinking, IMHO.
