Disparity of wealth spells certain doom

| No TrackBacks

While there is probably enough blame to go around, and far too much finger pointing. The sad truth is that if we learn nothing else about the Katrina tradegy and subsequent Home Land Security debacle, America still has a very big socio-economic divide. I would argue that it is perhaps more evident in the South. Our economy is in dire straits and it seems that the gap between the 'haves and have-nots' is clearly widening. While our government officials enjoy a lavish vacations and shoppingsprees, I often wonder who will solve the problem. The working poor are in serious trouble.

On a brighter note, I just returned from a local evacuee center. Although my offerings of laundry detergent were quite meager, considering the hundreds of families which are being hosted in Detroit, I mention it here to perhaps make the point that any contribution is much needed.

Bonus: If anyone is interested, take a look at the new NO satellite image. Pre and post Katrina. Quite sobering
