More than eighteen months ago, I wrote here that the high winds of blame were continuing to circulate around the abhorrently deficient level of the Hurricane Katrina federal relief efforts. Echoing the frustrations of local officials who had complained for days at that time about the slow federal response, the major New Orleans newspaper, The Times-Picayune, called for the removal of every official at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Today, one can hardly say that there have been major changes in the living conditions under which many of the Katrina victims have continued to suffer. Let us not forget those victims.
