Anne Rice Writes Article About New Orleans

Article
As much as I like Anne Rice's novels, I think she's a little off base here.

Especially when she claims ppl turned their backs on the city.
Are our military men and women not there? Are they not attempting to get food and water to the people who stayed behind, after being warned repeatedly to leave? Are they not trying to rescue those who need rescuing, while doing their best to avoid being shot?
Are people not reaching into their pockets to donate money and supplies? Are they not rolling up their sleeves for the blood drives?
Have they *really* turned their back on New Orleans, and dismissed those left in the city? I think not.

I'm really tired of people trying to politicize a freaking hurricane, and trying to turn it into a racial issue. How ignorant.
