Only when you have none, do you truly value food and water. Most Americans could not have imagined being utterly without these two basics before becoming acquainted with the plight of Gulf Coast victims of Hurricane Katrina. Ironically, many people rescued from the water in New Orleans are severely dehydrated. And hungry, too. Those who do find something to eat have experienced stomach troubles from eating spoiled food and drinking contaminated water.
Foodie attempted to find info about food being delivered to people in NOLA but could find precious little , a reflection indeed of the supply getting through.
A few questions, comments:
Why is it taking the Navy so long to bring in food and water?
The Coast Guard is seemingly everywhere, working at a fast efficient pace.
Much of the state's National Guard is deployed in Guess Where while the citizens of their state suffer through an acute emergency without them.
Is this how we secure our homeland?
How are assorted tv crews getting their food?
