  •  I believe that the Federal (none)
    government should have  been 100% prepared for this.  I would  not expect on a state and local level for the governments  to be 100%.  Disasters do not happen to the same state all of the time. (except for florda lately)  When you have not had a natural disaster in your state for a very long time, your emergency procedures tend to be updated and I do not think that any could have prepared mentally / realistically the devastion that occured especially after Katrina had passed.  Prepardedness only improves with use.

    At the Federal level, I feel that it should have been an entirely differnt story.   National guard troops should have been in the Gulf states helping the tourists, the poor, the hospitals ,etc evacuate.  Why weren't they there they one or two days before the storm to assist.  

    My blame is at the federal level.   Do the state and local government share? up to a point yes... could they have prepared more?  maybe... who knows?
