How Many More?

Friday, September 09, 2005


From the Associated Press (Friday, Sept. 9, 2005):
"Volunteer rescuer Gregg Silverman, part of a 14-boat contingent from Columbus, Ohio, said he expected to find many more survivors in his excursion through the city's flooded streets. Instead, he found mostly bodies. "They had me climb up on a roof, and I did bring an axe up to where a guy had tried to stick a pipe up through a vent." Silverman said. "Unfortunately, he had probably just recently perished. His dog was still there, barking. The dog wouldn't come. We had to leave the dog just up there in the attic."

A hurricane did not cause this man to perish. A natural disaster did not cause this man (and ultimately his dog) to perish. Human error, in the form of a dysfunctional response by all levels of government caused this. Ultimately the blame needs to go to the top of the chain of command. Mr. President, you will go down in the history books as one of the worst disasters to strike the United States.
