How would you compare the government’s response to Hurricane Rita to the response to Hurricane Katrina?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 26, 2005
“Totally opposite of each other. I think they were really worried about screwing up again. They really got caught with their pants down, and I think they are going to be on the ball for the rest of the hurricane season.”
“Their reaction to Rita was basically a reaction to the way they completely bungled Katrina. They were overprepared for Rita.”
“Hurricane Katrina was ridiculous. It shouldn’t have taken them that long. They learned from the first hurricane and knew that they would have to do better.”
“It’s the difference between black and white - look at the money. It’s pretty simple: Look at the water, look at the oil and imagine being one of the people affected.”
