I am fascinated by hurricane Gustav and the people of New Orleans and the LA Coast. Why won’t these people leave? I know the majority of them have left but there shouldn’t be anyone left in that region. Why on earth would you want to ride something like this out? It must be purely for bragging rights which seems really stupid to risk your life for. Do these people not remember Katrina?

Do they not remember the pictures of all the people sitting on their roofs holding signs asking to be rescued? All the dead in the nursing homes? All the devastation? Get out for crying out loud. And get the media out of there too. How stupid to send someone into this storm. I watched Anne Curry this morning as she was being pelted by rain. She repeatedly said it was painful to stand there but carried on like a real trooper…or dumb ass, I don’t know.
