The President and Mrs. Williams…oh, and Katrina

I find it completely absurd that after Katrina, the President visited with Mrs. Williams, a Katrina victim. Actually, he visited her on two separate trips to New Orleans. The president promised federal help for people like Mrs. Williams that New Orleans would be rebuilt. Well…Mrs. Williams’ home will now be condemned by the city because it hasn’t been repaired and will have to be torn down. If you’re visited by the president who says you will receive help, and then your home is condemned six months later, what’s the point of having the president visit and what is the value of his words?

Oddly enough, the president will be back in New Orleans next week. I guess he’ll be staying far away from Mrs. Williams’ neighborhood…..
