          EYEWITNESS TO AMERICAN SHAME
A white couple, visitors who got caught  in New Orleans, give a harrowing account of what it was like. Let us learn from this. If the next major natural disaster happens to be a California quake, the Asian American community will take its hardest hit.


"At that point, we had not seen any of the TV coverage or looked at a newspaper, but we guessed there were no video images of European and white tourists, like us, looting the Walgreens in the French Quarter,'' the couple wrote in an eight-page account of their experience:

"...what we witnessed were the real heroes and sheroes of the hurricane relief effort: the working class of New Orleans. The maintenance workers who used a fork lift to carry the sick and disabled. The engineers, who rigged, nurtured and kept the generators running. The electricians who improvised thick extension cords stretching over blocks to share the little electricity we had in order to free cars stuck on rooftop parking lots. Nurses who took over for mechanical ventilators and spent many hours on end manually forcing air into the lungs of unconscious patients to keep them alive. Doormen who rescued folks stuck in elevators. Refinery workers who broke into boat yards, "stealing" boats to rescue their neighbors clinging to their roofs in flood waters. Mechanics who helped hot-wire any car that could be found to ferry people out of the City. And the food service workers who scoured the commercial kitchens improvising communal meals for hundreds of those stranded.


That's the good parts. Read it all and count your blessings that you were not there. To also show another aspect, the next article is a map showing how large an area was devastated by putting it into perspective with a map overlay of the Northeast.
