Hey, remember the story about the hotel guests
who were evacuated in advance of the folks at the Superdome? And how some people pointed out that those same people had actually *hired* buses to be evacuated, only to have their buses commandeered by the National Guard? And that the debate was whether putting the hotel guests on buses before the Superdome evacuees was, or was not, racist?
A couple of the hotel evacuees tells their side of the story
. Read the whole thing, it's a hell of a story. The money quote? "Throughout, the official relief effort was callous, inept, and racist. "
Oops, almost forgot: I saw this first at ER's place
