They keep saying it .... "This is a disaster of biblical proportions." "This is a catastrophe of biblical scope." What do you suppose they think they mean by that?Biblical proportions! I want to throttle these people.
I suppose -- in the spirit of "Mistakes were made" and "It's just plain astonishing how quickly we've moved to Reach Out to the people trapped in New Orleans!" -- what they mean is "Don't blame me, blame God."
We are the gods here. The world is what we make it. We soar over God's Earth in machines of our creation. We can slay any living thing on Earth from those too tiny to see to those too massive to lift. We've harnessed God's own lightning. We've visited the heavens and split the "indivisible" atom. We work miracles.
This is an absolute disgrace. Humanity is better than this.
The guy who runs this building I'm in, emergency management, he's responsible for everything. His mother was trapped in St. Bernard nursing home and every day she called him and said, "Are you coming, son? Is somebody coming?" And he said, "Yeah, Mama, somebody's coming to get you. Somebody's coming to get you on Tuesday. Somebody's coming to get you on Wednesday. Somebody's coming to get you on Thursday. Somebody's coming to get you on Friday." And she drowned Friday night. She drowned Friday night.I'm just livid. There's no excuse for this.
