Katrina Claims Another

I just got off the phone with a friend of 15 years. He won’t be joining us for dinner tonight.

It seems his dad stood in line for an hour to see about his FEMA trailer. When it was finally his turn, he learned that FEMA lost his application and he wouldn’t be getting a trailer any time soon.

He was given a piece of paper and told he had to fill it out and drive an hour to bring it to the right office.

His wife walked out the door and wondered what was taking her husband so long. He never made it out the door.

When the final death toll will be added up, his name -like thousands of others who died in similar circumstances- won’t be on the list of those killed by Katrina. But he was.
