Concentration camps may be a bit over-the-top, but "internment camp" seems a very appropriate description.

"It's something out of your worst nightmare."

I said something about the disaster being handled badly on all levels of government and he said "Well, you know, it simply greed and politics. The governor was Democrat, spoke out against the president prior to this and now, they are being punished for it. The president could have done something, but he didn't. I can't believe the absolute stupidity and political meanness that has gone on."
When I mentioned the mayor's plea for residents to come back, Dad said "Come back to what? There is nothing there for these people. Their homes are sitting in the middle of the street, there are no jobs, The 'white areas' are decorated for Christmas and poor sections still have dead dogs in the roads."

The Bush Administration. Poster children for democracy in action.

Thanks for the link, dearie. I wish my Dad could personally talk to all the lackeys and repugs who continue to support the administration on the handling of New Orleans. Of course, as if they would listen.

I've been reading what you've been writing about your Dad's time in New Orleans in your blog and found the story very interesting.
