Response to California Wildfires

Does everyone realize that with over 500 thousand people evacuated or under evacuation orders….At least for the short-term that these wildfires have now affected the lives of as many or more than the amount of people evacuated-migrated out of New Orleans and surrounding area from Katrina.

Maybe we should send them all down there.

Re-purpose the Superdome…..

Seriously though…I suppose California is the worlds 5 or 6th largest economy but why can we do such a better job responding to this, than to Katrina???
