Who was at fault with Hurricane Katrina?

This morning I watched a discussion between Senators Trent Lott and Barbara Boxer on This Week. What was striking was their discussion of the fires in California and Trent Lott briefly mentioning the Katrina disaster in his own state. The focus emphasized that FEMA might finally have gotten its act together with the fires in California. But Florida has had many big hurricanes hit before Katrina, Mississippi faced an even more direct hit than New Orleans from Katrina, and now California, all seemed to go pretty smoothly. Could it be that the problem was with Louisiana's local government and not FEMA?

I guess everyone considers Hurricane Rita as a non-event since we here in East Texas STILL have people living in tents waiting for FEMA to release money so we can move into back decent housing and/ or rebuild. I guess we are not "politically connected" enough to get aid like those in the New Orleans area! Are we bitter? YES! Will we remember? You d--n right we will!
