Irony Abounds In The Aftermath of Katrina

I just clicked on a link on cnn.com that read “Is this America?” a sentiment that has been invoked over and over again this past week. It’s a 3 minute, 49 second long video clip with the description and dateline of: CNN’s Christiane Amanpour reports on international reaction to Third World conditions in New Orleans. (September 4). The thing is, before I could see the clip, I had to sit through a 30 second clip for the U.S. Army, extolling the virtues of the training a young man would receive in the Army National Guard.
But for the fact that large portions of the Missippi and Louisiana Army National Guard are in Iraq and thus unable to help save their neighbors’ lives, this would be funny.
Ha Ha Ha.
