So----these lazy poor people who just willfully disregarded the warnings about the hurricane just should have walked out, huh? Look at the tiny number of victims under 50 and compare it with the number over 60. :rolleyes:

I find the statistics about the amount of blacks and whites really telling. All this talk about how the black people were just left there and calling it racism. More blacks did die, but not THAT many. Especially considering the hardest hit areas were prodominently black.
