The Difference in Hurricanes and States

I've been watching the procedures taking place on CNN in which the Mayor of NYC has so eloquently addressed the issue and put forth the proper plans in place in order to help ensure the safety of the residents. 

It has brought to mind a few comparisons that I would like to make with Katrina and Irene. For one thing it seems that when a hurricane is threatening New York is sure gets a faster response for the people than Katrina did for the people of New Orleans. Also I guess we won't be seeing people herded into a stadium like cattle to a barn either. It seemed no problem to shut down a whole subway system in New York, but the mayor of New Orleans couldn't seem to find enough buses to take the people of New Orleans out of the city and to safety.


I guess we will have to see what happens when Irene finally blasts New York. It will be interesting to see the after effects and how orderly that goes. 


Normally I blog about positive writing. Well, this is a positive thing for New York so maybe lessons will be learned so that we won't ever have to have another Katrina.
