Why do FEMA employees read Louisiana Questions?

November 5, 2007

Periodically, I review my referrals. You’ll never guess who surfed into Louisiana Questions…FEMA. My last post Oct. 26th provoked some comments from a FEMA contracted employee who agreed that people still need help in the aftermath of Katrina, more than two years later. All fake news conferences aside…

What’s FEMA doing surfing my blog?

FEMA surfing my blog?!!

The page FEMA viewed was What’s in da news for da parish in august 2007 when the news reported formaldehyde poisoning from FEMA trailers. Recently, I was informed that some people or organizations are selling FEMA trailers in the Northwest. I believe there was a 1-800 number posted on my website during the formaldehyde hubub so that concerned people could call FEMA with questions about their trailers. Why else would FEMA be surfing my blog? Ideas anyone?

Who is Katrina bashing, California?

October 26, 2007

I should be upset about the recent comparisons of the California, San Diego fires to hurricane Katrina. The media would like to take every opportunity to degrade the state of Louisiana and what happened during Katrina. The fact of the matter IS California is one of the richest states in the Union if NOT THE RICHEST state in the United States. Louisiana is rural. It’s largest city is New Orleans. Comparisons between Louisiana and California should be limited to Hollywood fantasy. . They quite simply cannot be made legitimately. Why the media has chosen to bash Louisiana again for hurricane Katrina, I do not know. These media types have been struggling for news stories, have forged journalistic credentials, and are typically dense and careless with their reporting. Of course California would have better emergency planning than Louisiana. They have more money. Those reporting comparitively should be required to donate their personal time in helping rebuild in Mississippi and Louisiana. As for those families in California who have lost everything – they have my condolences.

This post goes into the Clueless Katrina comments file.

And a new catagory – Katrina bashing.

Update: Oct. 27, 2007 – Here are the links to a few comments from LiveJournal in MSGulf Coast Community and New Orleans Community. And this post from an account by “Feets” Binkowski in California link from jdquintette @ LiveJournal.
