I just realized something.
Here in California we've got this wicked raging firestorm going on, right?
Hundreds of homes damaged or gone, hundreds of people left without a home.
Most of the evacuated folk are safe inside gyms and other large places, and are being taken care of with lots of food and visits from the Governator and the President.
Do you remember Hurricane Katrina?
Thousands of homes damaged or gone, thousands of people left dead and even more left without a home.
Most of the survivors are still living in temporary bungalow homes, and don't have the heaping piles of food that the evacuated Californians do. It took several weeks for the government to even respond to this crisis, which had a greater impact than these firestorms.
What's up with that?
