...and focus on the tropics - the real purpose of this site. It has been over a week since Katrina made landfall and it will be many years before the affected area returns to full recovery. The period for 'rant and rave and indignation' needs to give way to a more productive activity. I'd really like to see the Disaster Forum used for what it was intended for. Lets help link folks together. Lets point out assistance centers for those that need them. Thanks for your assistance.

Don't write off 100 miles of people left on a debris-ridden coastline, by not caring. I cannot and will not forget. They aren't even in the news, not at all. The country doesn't know about them. And they're not getting help.

When people are in a situation like that, getting the word out is the best thing that you can do, and to turn away is a cowardly thing. To censor it is even worse. You're writing those people off just like they tried to do with the folks in the Superdome in New Orleans.

It is a disaster, you know. This is the disaster forum. What do you want us to talk about, buttercups and daisies, pretend it isn't happening?

You tell me - what is the productive post? Go ahead, and post something productive. Show me what it is you think would be the productive thing to say. I'm listening.
