A blurb from this blog: Two things disturbed me nearly as much as the death, destruction and lawlessness.... how many husband-less women and girls there were who had babies and children along with them. And [how] more than one man near my dad’s age wailed plaintively about why no one was doing anything for him them.

I wonder how many of those "husbandless women" actually HAVE husbands that are serving in the armed forces. Just a thought.

Yes, to be a woman with a child and no usband is certainly more disturbing than the death and destruction. oh lord what is this world coming to? :P

Why does a woman need a husband to be validated? People get divored. Men don't take responsibility for their kids. Families are split up in disasters by the chaos. Men/husbands die.

some people *shakes head*

I can understand noticing those two things, but to openly state that they "disturbed me nearly as much as the death, destruction and lawlessness"? That's a covert Republican tactic, is what that is. Turning a natural diseaster into a platform to discuss the morality of those affected is a covert republican tactic. (Think Trent Lott. Think those wanting to pass the estate tax and saying that doing so will help to accelerate growth, which is "something the victims of Hurricane Katrina need right now". Think anyone who's saying anything about the destruction being deserved because of the number of abortion clinics, or sinful gays.)

Moses supozas, ke mia piedfingroj estas rozoj....
I personaly find it disturbing that most of those "husbandless women" seen were forcibly seperated from their husbands to be evacuated.... Many men at the convention center were complaining that authorities made all the men move away before their wives and children would be allowed on the busses....

Add to that the fact that media coverage on the convention center KEEPS giving the impression these people were violent, when they were far more peaceful than the superdome (http://www.livejournal.com/users/interdictor/42309.html) and now many shelters are refusing to take in people who were stranded there... One has to wonder how long it will take these familys to find eachother again.
