Damn

In light of all the tragedies of Hurricane Katrina, the decimation of the legal system may seem small, but this article just made it seem that much more harrowing.

You're right, sweetie, that's very, very disheartening. :(

Scary. From what you see in the media, there are so many areas that are forgotten, or just ignored.

Did you see Barbara Bush's comments? Shameful.

I saw these yesterday. Man, why isn't the Bush family just being lynched?

Some of it stems, ironically, from prejudice against the South. W. sold himself as a Southern rancher and was this embraced by rural America and underestimated by everyone else.
