Hurricane Wilma in Mexico

Hey folks. I am just a little PISSED OFF. I love the Mayan Rivera area of Mexico. This is the area that is about 90 miles of beach from Cancun island south to the Mayan city at Tulum. As we sit here, this area is being hammered by hurricane Wilma. The island of Cozumel took a direct hit. The eyewall has been pummeling this island with 140-150 mph winds since noon today. The eye is currently almost directly over Playa del Carmen. It is projected to remain almost stationary and wreak havoc on this area for another 24-36 hours. Compare this to the hurricanes that hit New Orleans and Texas that passed through those areas in 4-6 hours. What is pissing me off is CNN, the Weather Channel, and the other US news media. The entire focus of their reporting basically is that as it is good for the US and Florida for Wilma to continue to destroy Mexico… There is very little reporting as to the human misery this storm is causing to the citizens of the Yucatan. Cancun is a city with a population of over one million. Playa del Carmen has several hundred thousand living there. And there are a host of smaller towns and villages all up and down the coast, and inland. How many people are dying as we sit here? How many people are losing everything they own? Most of these folks have very little anyway. Please take a minute and whisper a prayer for these wonderful people. And be quite angry at the very insensitive reporting of US news outlets. I think these idiots are out of control anyway.

You are right. I represent a company that paid for and sent THREE large JETS to Cancun to bring their passengers out of there BEFORE the hurricane hit. How does that compare to Delta, Contentianl, and other airlines who CANCELLED flights leaving their passangers stranded!! If they stepped up and did the right thing, the number of AMERICANS stranded in that area would be greatly reduced. Did you know that Mexico seng AID to New Orleans and the victems there? What has our government done to help the folks in Cancun and the Mayan Riveria. I am ashamed!!!

America makes decisions all the time that creates the suffering of other people and it never makes the news -- there is nothing strange about it -- what is strange is that you haven't noticed it before!
