Gripes from Vacation...

Okay, I nominally would not post something like this here, but...

I'm on vacation, but still spend some late-night time watching CNN via satellite.

The coverage of Katrina is now excessive... and I am DISGUSTED by the behavior of some there in New Orleans: , looting, murder, n*****-gangs firing on cops, fire, and EMT's! Several fires... possible arson?

I lived in Pensacola for 9 months of training, visited New Orleans several times, and loved the Gulf Coast (even the humidity). I'm saddened to see the damage, and I shall pray for the surivors... but DANG IT... SHOOT the looters and HANG the .

Plus I watch many of the politicians preen, prattle, and protest... rather than getting THEIR asses to work.

I survived the Northridge quake, and flew missions during both that event and the Loma Prieta quake... we never took fire... we watched Oakland gang members ASSIST in rescue/recovery work on the I-880 freeway.

Perhaps it's the press-coverage... or perhaps people are actually getting crueler.

So pray for the survivors, the workers, and particularly my brother & sister Rescue Swimmers.

Okay... I didn't really expect any comments to this one... too divisive.
