Absolutely horrific.

Scout Prime draws our attention to a story not getting a whole lot of airplay:

You know, it's hard to imagine anything worse than coming back to your home in New Orleans and finding it completely destroyed. But, tonight, as you're about to hear, there is something worse, much worse. Dozens of families have returned to what is left of their homes and found, lying amidst the mold and the wreckage, a body, forgotten, abandoned. Maybe it's their mother or their grandmother, sometimes even their missing child.

Of course FEMA threw up its hands and walked away. After all, it's only BLACK people we're talking about here.

It's outrageous. Clink on the link Scout Prime's provided at the bottom of her post and let your representatives know that this is a national disgrace.
