People learn from these incidents and if they happen again, response is much more coordinated.
Katrina is a perfect example of where so many on the left have tried to blame the alleged racism of GW Bush for unsatisfactory disaster reponse while ignoring poor local management by corrupt politicians (Nagin was later brought up on corruption charges).
it's not a lie. And nagin had nothing to do with the federal response. Who was president at the time? I never believed it to be racism but pure incompetence.
