- Being Rich -

Well, this is certinaly rich:

The stories out of New Orleans will continue to break all but the hardest hearts in the next several weeks and months, but the one that needs to die soonest is that America turned her back on blacks. America, starting with the city of New Orleans and the state of Louisiana, turned her back on the poor.

See, not just the Katrina response was primarily a local failure. So, too, was the poverty. And if Louisiana and New Orleans don't have the resources because the state and city are poor compared to the rest of the country, well, too bad.

I wonder what Kathleen Parker is doing for the poor in Orlando.


I just wrote a letter to the editor of the Orlando Sentinel, not that they are likely to publish it.
