Rescue Ticket

Via Unfogged

CNN's Drew Griffin reports:

I am stunned by an interview I conducted with New Orleans Detective Lawrence Dupree. He told me they were trying to rescue people with a helicopter and the people were so poor they were afraid it would cost too much to get a ride and they had no money for a "ticket." Dupree was shaken telling us the story. He just couldn't believe these people were afraid they'd be charged for a rescue.

So much for the theory that poor people are just waiting for a hand-out......

It's all Bush's fault, right Ono?

There are folks who carry chips on their shoulder and then there are folks like anonymous, who apparently carry a boulder. This may be one of the few things that isn't Bush's fault

Sorry Fr. David,

I don't think this was Bush's fault. Just making a bit of fun at liberals who always seem to blame Bush for everything.

I can actually think of quite a few things that aren't Bush's fault.

On second thought, after reading some of your blog, I guess YOU seem to belong to this Bush-blaming group of liberals. Nevermind the "sorry" comment.

This is so sad? I guess comes of not having a welfare state. Here in the UK everybody gets free medical care and free emergency services, like Ambulances, Fire, Police, Life Guard so if you were in need of helicopter rescue it would be free.

This really has upset me. No it's not George W Bush's fault. My prayers are with everyone down South in need.
