    Well de SoCal peeps get to go to de shelter and get massages while dey watch news coverage to keep dem abreast of de situation...aint dat sweet

    Dis is vs. getting stacked onto each other to dwell in urine and feces while being kept blind to all going on around dem

    Go figure...

    The areas are different so the ppl's resources are different, ie look how many of the Cali ppl pulled up to the shelter w/ their RVs and the ones that are staying inside came w/ their tents, sleeping bags etc. So given the difference in class and resources it would be kinda dumb to even try to compare their conditions.

    Only thing you can really compare is the fema response...obviously much better and quicker...they have something to prove now.

    Yep! That's pretty much it.

    And even the FEMA response is under completely different circumstances. New Orleans was more difficult to move resources through.

    It is really interesting how Americans react to each other during periods of Internal Crisis.
