Surely I am not the only person who was horrified at the images of the thousands of New Orleans residents who huddled inside the Super Dome to escape Hurricane Katrina. It's horrible that anyone falls victim to such a natural disaster. But these people were there for one reason: they were poor and could not afford to flee the hurricane. As the forecasters were predicting a Category 5 hurricane -- and 25 to 30 feet of water, I could only think, "My God, those poor people are going to drown in there. And all because they are poor." Where is the outrage? By the way, want to bet that MANY of them have relatives and friends fighting in Iraq? (Photos: Top, Associated Press; bottom, The Washington Post.)
