What’s happening in Louisiana right now is horrible. Hundreds dead, probably thousands homeless, an historic city in ruins, polluted waters, out of control looting and crime. But Louisiana’s Governor Blanco’s “solution” is not going to help:
Louisiana’s Governor Blanco urged residents to spend Wednesday in prayer and assured them the crisis would eventually be overcome.
Prayer? Prayer didn’t help them yesterday did it? It’s not going to help today either. She should be urging residents to get the hell out of the city/state if they can, or help with the rescue effort otherwise. If neither option is possible, stay home and try to relax; play scrabble or read a book. Prostrating yourself and pleading with the Flying Spaghetti Monster or your deity of choice is just a waste of time.
