    if you canvass people sandbagging, that most of the people who stayed behind to do so are not rich Republicans.

    So I would think that yes, everyone who was allowed would volunteer to stay and sandbag, but that no, everyone hasn't.

    Everything is political.

    Especially disasters like this because public health policy determines, to some degree, who will live and who will die.

    And public health policy is being wanked around by political operatives in the Bush Administration.

    Check out which neighborhoods in New Orleans house the power plants, chemical plants, and sewage treatment plants that will be destroyed or damaged in this storm, polluting the areas around them.

    By and large, you'll find poor and working class people living near these facilities.

    Everything is political.
