    Why does everyone talk about New Orleans? The worst of the storm was across Mississippi and part of Alabama!! Why is there no reporting on the Gulf Coast? The TRUE GULF COAST. And now that same area is dealing with OIL??? What gives? Our Gulf Coast is still struggling to recover. Where's the help for those people?

    New Orleans flooding was Gods way of flushing the toilet. It was a dirty place with lots of drunks, drugs, witch craft, ect. All you had to do was walk down the streets and see what was in those shops for sale. Certainly not things you would bring home to your children as souviners of your trip.

    I assume (know what happenes when we do that) someone is making money off those documentaries. So how much realy goes to help the people of New Orleans?
