Tolouse Street Gets it Right

Mark Folse responds to a Reuters article on yahoo that shows that the memory of the masses is short lived.

Here's an excerpt from this article

Americans get lots of warning when a storm threatens, can use their own cars or public transit to escape on efficient, paved evacuation routes, have sturdy homes or tall buildings to protect them from a flood and plenty of food and medical care in the aftermath, said emergency management experts at a hurricane conference in Fort Lauderdale.

Like I said, people have short term memory problems, but those of us who experienced the immediate aftermath of Katrina - the DAYS it took for us to get any kind of help - know better than the so called "emergency management experts".
