Hurricane Katrina victims still getting screwed...

A victim of Hurricane Katrina in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, put up a sign last year after phoning the Federal Emergency Management Agency for help four times and being asked each time to leave a message.

Ten months after Hurricane Katrina exposed failures at all levels of government, Congress is focusing in on FEMA. Nobody will be held accountable.

I have friends in New Orleans who tell horror stories about their efforts to get answers from the various agencies who are supposed to be providing relief. People don't deserve this kind of treatment after suffering so much. I'm not sure what is the answer. What do you think?
