Not Playing the Race Card...

...but I'm glad to see the subject isn't verboten:,0,1865227.story?coll=la-home-headlines

I'm not so cynical as to believe that any *conscious* racism is responsible for the horrors of post-Katrina New Orleans. But, in the words of a letter to the editor from earlier this week, nicely stating the obvious: "It appears that the 'haves' had the money and vehicles to flee New Orleans, and the 'have nots' - people of color - got left behind to fend for themselves. What a sad commentary on the United States!"

I'm off for the airport in about 15 minutes. See you all in a couple of weeks...
