1906 San Francisco Quake vs 2005 New Orleans Hurricane: A comparison of Response

so at the Daily Kos website, I discovered a beautiful timeline of the responses from government officials to the 1906 earthquake that hit San Francisco, still the worst natural disaster in US history in terms of human casualties, as over 3000 died.

Here is the link to the timeline of the response to the Earthquake in 1906

now compare that to the response to Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans in 2005

notice how much quicker the government responded back in 1906. I thought we were more technologically advanced than they were back then, I mean, they didn't even have airplanes!!!

Com'on America, don't let Bush get away with this. you let him get away with a war that was not needed to be fought, but don't let him get away with his indifferent response to Americans dying here at home.
