The system doesn't work--not even in Texas

A reporter who was in Texas yesterday said that Texas evacuees could not buy gas because so many Texans were evacuating in SUV's and gobbling up gallons and gallons of fuel. Today, many Texans complained that there wasn't a real evacuation plan. Numerous drivers could not get gas and had to move to the shoulder of the road. There were no law enforcement officers in sight. Did you hear that, Kathy Walt?

Because FEMA's Blue Roof program failed, there are many more leaky roofs in Louisiana now that Rita's rain is falling.

Today, I saw a friend whose house was severely damaged by Katrina. He doesn't know if it can be re-built. He and his family are staying with a family member because the FEMA trailers are "not available." Yesterday, a FEMA representative was on our only radio channel, explaining that the FEMA trailers do not have to be parked in a FEMA trailer park if residents have others places they can put them. Today, a woman who wanted to put a trailer on a particular piece of property called in, saying she spoke with a FEMA representative who told her that the media needs to "stop making things up."

I used to think the IRS was the gateway to madness, but even that organization pales in comparison with FEMA.

I'm thinking one reason many families were in large vehicles or multiple vehicles was because they were taking their animals with them. If you've got two pet carriers in the back seat, it's hard to fit even one other person back there, let alone someone in a kid's car seat.

My full blessing to anyone carrying both kids and pets, and also to the trucks hauling horse trailers. But people not carrying animals contributed to a real mess. I heard of people who traveled 35 miles in 7 hours.
