this wasn’t in some distant hazy land full of minarets and goats in the streets, this was here, in the United States of freaking America! These tax paying citizens were not only failed to be taken care of adequately, but they were failed to be taken care of humanely. A civilized, Western State was so entrenched in bureaucratic policies, that it did what it had always done; evacuate, house, and walk away. According to the powers at be these people should have used their bootstraps and be reality show millionaires by now. Instead, a lot of these environmental refugees are still sleeping on couches, street corners, and homeless shelters.
