Ash Wednesday

I am not a religious person, but I find it painfully ironic that this was released on Ash Wednesday - the day after the city known for Mardi Gras limped through it.

Why are we not revolting? Don't you remember how we all felt when we watched it going down? Why are Americans so fucking pathetic? What can we do?

:( Based on my coworkers, I'd say that an alarming number of Americans think the "liberal media" is making a lot of this up. ARGH!!

Probably more than ironic.

I have no idea if things would be different up here in Canada - we don't really have disasters of that proportion that I can think of off the top of my head, because of our geography.

Amen sister. I don't see any outrage, and I can't understand why.

Are you reading Firedoglake? There's some good outrage there lately:

It's AWFUL.
AWFUL.
I was in Sri Lanka 3 years ago. There was a flood in the town I was staying after a thunderstorm.
They had no hope against a tsunami, even if they did have warning.
What happened in the wake of Katrina is atrocious.
You're right. I can't believe there isn't more outrage.
Maybe we could declare a 'War on Apathy'.

my family is from there, and really mardi gras was fun this year for them and they are going on with their lives... my cousin said he was saddened and shocked the first day he got back, but by the third day he really got numb to what had happened, he just chose to move on mentally. All of them have, their way of life is very different now, and they are use to it now... glad rita didn't tear up my home when she had the chance.
