  1. To those of you who even have the guts to type these asinine posts I'd just love to see any of your reactions and emotions if you lost everything in your life in a natural disaster and become homeless and dependent on others for survival. [snapback]923123[/snapback] Property can be replaced. Life cannot. Again it comes down to material > life what an amazing mentality there [snapback]923124[/snapback] And then come back to what life? You have no job, no home and everything is gone. Have you noticed that 15 years later there are still people recovering from Andrew. It will take these people years, even a decade for them to recover again. [snapback]923125[/snapback] Das is 100% correct and you are way off base. You make a claim that the people did not leave because they did not want to leave their possesions behind. This, despite the numerous warnings, a category 5 hurricane coming and living in a city that is several feet under sea level. That my friend, is called stupidity. Nothing else. The people who have no home to come back to still have one major advantage than the people who rode it out, they still have their life. Plan and simple, and that is the most important thing, at least that is what a sane person would say. And to answer your question, I would be devestated if I lost everything, but I would rather be safe and alive at that time then dead. [snapback]923153[/snapback] They had 1 day to evacuate an entire city thanks to Mayor C. Ray Nagin who waited to the last minute and would have waited more if it wasn't for Max Mayfield over at the NHC. Of course I agree with you that saving your life is more important than material possesions (and no I'm not insane if you're implying that). But the majority of people in this country if in a similar situation would do the same to protect there possesions and their property cause as usual, humanity believes it can defy nature's wrath. Also as much as we can blame people for staying in NO, Bolixi, Gulfport, etc. Many thought they could survive the storm because many homes in that area survived Camille which was more powerful and intense hurricane than Katrina, just smaller in size. And trust me, some people after those disasters would rather be dead than alive because they can't handle situation. I remember speaking to one man a couple weeks after Andrew and he told me he would have killed himself if he actually would've found his gun which probably was blown away when his entire house was destoryed. And as far as those who evacuated, who knows whats going through they're minds as we type. Some are strong enough to accept the catastrophe and other are probably considering suicide at this point. You know what should be considered as stupidity and moronic (plus whatever words you wish to use) is that this entire catastrophy could've been avoided. There was a $14 billion dollar proposal that would have increased the height of the levees and preserve the wetlands that were sinking but as usual politician thought the price tag was to high and that the scenario (of catastrophic flooding) would probably would never happen. You also have to consider that other cities in the US have this same problem like Houston which also sinking but never at the speed of NO. Question to you: What did anyone have to gain by staying in their house with their "items"? Could they save their house by staying in it as opposed to evacuating? Answer that. Remember that city got western side of the eye which is technically the weaker side of the hurricane and many thought after the hurricane passed that NO had dodged the bullet once again. All of this people who took the chance probably would be alive if the damn levee system wasn't so damn old and outdated.

  3. What in the world is wrong with you people on this thread? Have you ever thought that most of the people who stayed in their homes in NO are hard working citizens who have worked hard to achive what they have. It isn't easy to just leave everything you've worked for in life. To expect people to just forget about what they have because a hurricane is coming is total BS! It isn't materalism or stupidity or stubburness. Even those who evacuated possibly have no homes or life to get back to.

  4. The anti-french comments are getting pretty inane at this point. Anything you can think of to bolster your ego's it seems. The United States, in turn, is working closely with French President Jacques Chirac, who made a surprise trip to Beirut yesterday to convey condolences to the Hariri family. What to do about Syria is "rapidly climbing up the agenda" of a meeting on Monday between President Bush (news - web sites) and Chirac, said a senior administration official speaking on the condition of anonymity because of the diplomatic sensitivity. "We're on the same page. . . . The entire international community wants to see something happen." http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=stor...30801_2005feb16 Spin away.

  5. Alomar's very close to signing with the Rays I read, so they can block another good youngster in Cantu. What a franchise. :plain :banghead :rolleyes: [snapback]657967[/snapback] Gotta love Lou though... he said he rather have Alomar at 2nd than Cantu... :banghead At least we'll get some prospects when Kenny Williams decides to trade for him again around midseason. :plain Where are you Stu? I hope you have a better plan in spending that $60 million dollar payroll in 2006... :confused
