Hurricane Katrina
The aftermath of Hurricane Katrina is a disaster in every sense of the word. There are people dying: old, young, infirm, poor. Looting is rampant, gangs bearing guns robbed from vandalized stores. In a way, you can't blame some of these folks; people need food, medicine, water. But others are just taking advantage of a bad situation-stealing TV's, beer, stuff like that. This is just the tip of the iceberg-too many poor people with no chance at supporting themselves; now their situation is made unbearable by the hurricane and its resulting difficulties.

Next is the gas situation-prices going through the roof; probably most of it due to gouging by the gas companies. Working folks don't stand a chance. I don't care about the yuppies.

My alarmist revolutionary heart is telling me that this is the beginning of the long period of grave difficulties that the U.S. will face in the coming decades. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Left Behind to Face the Worst
