A Very Small Step in the Right Direction

FEMA is going to buy back the trailers that are pickling Katrina victims. The Formaldehyde laced residences will be then disposed of. While this is good news it is about two years too late. Also two years too late is the decision by FEMA to never again use travel or mobile homes. This decision only applies to the trailers bought by FEMA and not the trailers bought by the GSA. Therefore, some people will be told "sorry you get no refund, your trailer was purchased by the GSA not FEMA." Two years on the people of NOLA and the Gulf Coast are still getting the shaft. Are we ever going to do the right thing by them? Sorry no, not while George W and his happy bunch of happy bunch neo-con thugs are still in charge.
