And therein lies the difference. Malruhn, your privilege is so deepset, you can't see it to save your life. Nothing about the Katrina victims was average. Nothing. Therefore, you had a big ole head-start.

Totally different situation, the logistics, the scale, the economy, the level of displacement and devistation, etc. And for you to compare the two is simply silly. And I say that as a child of the coast, raised on the coast till adulthood. I know hurricanes. There has never been one in the recent history of the states that came anywhere close to Katrina. Never.
