  •  Anectdote about FEMA taking local supplies away (13+ / 0-)

    A guy at work told me he went in to Academy Sports to try to get some batteries and flashlights.  They were cleaned out, even though they had supposedly gotten a shipment in of those items.  The manager at the store told him that FEMA came in, bought all of them to give to their workers here.  If this is true, it demonstrates just how stupid FEMA management is that they didn't even send their people here with supplies.

    It was interesting that Hilton Furniture as well as several radio stations did a better job with their individual attempts at bringing supplies to the Houston area than FEMA did.
