OT: Thoughts on the 2nd anniversary of Katrina hitting New Orleans

(This is a copy of my post from my IL Smokers Alliance group)

This week marks the 2nd anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. I'm not gonna share my detailed thoughts on that sad event which has its own place in the history of my culture. But I am very fortunate I wasn't living down there when it happened. I'd be without no roof, little food, and no cigs for several days til Bush decided to send help down there.

If I think these smoking bans are bad, I oughta imagine what it would be like living in a Superdome or on a bus for several days. And I would've been in deeper sheet after I smoked all of my cigs. I'd have to wait til I got my life back to normal til I could smoke again.

If anyone actually read this, thanks for reading. I know this is a smoking group. But I can't ignore a significant event that affected my life as a person living in America. Bush could care less about ALL smokers and ALL poor people! I wonder what Nawlins would've been like 2 yrs ago if the majority of us were smokers too. I seriously doubt people who provided assistance did so by giving the folks free cig packs. I know I wouldn't mind giving out free packs to those of us who were in need of them down there.
