What will it take?

This is an interesting articel by a city planner on what the next steps are for housing the mass of humanity in the south.

Each evacuee should be assigned a FEMA case manager. Evacuees and those residing in shelters should be interviewed within a week to determine their individual immediate and near-term needs.

[snip]

FEMA should already have people surveying rental housing markets in surrounding unaffected areas and placing deposits vacant apartment and home units. As units are held for victims, these data should be loaded into the GIS and an inventory compiled.

[snip]

FEMA will likely develop temporary and interim group sites, which no doubt will be labeled by the media “refugee camps.” Temporary housing encampments are FEMA’s bread and butter. I’m sure that there are many very experienced people at FEMA who are likely gearing up to meet this need as we speak. Remember, these will be temporary and the accommodations will be tolerable as they will be air conditioned, offer a semblance of privacy, and evacuees will have access to clean water, food, and showers. Think about the temporary facilities constructed in Iraq for our soldiers and you get the picture. Do our soldiers live in “refugee camps”?

Real interesting, especially when he delves into the question of one big “camp” versus many little camps.

What’s The Difference?

.... between an “insurgent” in Iraq and a ”looter” in New Orleans?

None, whatsoever. There will always be evil people among us. Aim for the center target. Shoot to kill. Let God sort ‘em out ....
