The Washington Post's Eugene Robinson just ran a column accompanied by this picture, of a bumpersticker seen on a car at Mardi Gras.

I'll tell you what makes me afraid. The fact that we're exporting movies like Syriana.

Anyway, all the hand-wringing aside, my hope is that the New Orleans fiasco serves as a reminder to people that they should never plan to depend on their government when disaster strikes. It's one thing to criticize the President (and rightly so) for not knowing he doesn't know what's going on and thus passing the wrong messages. It's another in my mind for individuals to blame the government for personal suffering that they could have prevented on their own.

What I find disturbing about this is that New Orleans is already in a state of chaos and confusion.
What this article and accompanying photo serve to remind us is that things could get much, much worse, especially uder the current administration. I do fear for New Orleans and the entire USA.
After Katrina I felt like I was in a Mad Max movie. Everything was desolate. Is this to be our future?
