Just What They Need [Sep. 2nd, 2005|01:17 am]
Wizard of Changes -- ©cdozo 2004 to 2015
From the New York Times article Democrats and Others Criticize White House's Response to Disaster by September 2, 2005.



"It was not enough for the president to bank his plane and look at the
window and say, 'Oh, what a devastating site,' " Senator Frank R.
Lautenberg, Democrat of New Jersey,
said in a statement on Thursday. "Instead of looking out the window of
an airplane, he should have been on the ground giving the people
devastated by this hurricane hope."




Hope of what?

Louisiana 1927

by Randy Newman


What has happened down here is the winds have changed

Clouds roll in from the north and it started to rain

Rained real hard and it rained for a real long time

Six feet of water in the streets of Evangeline




The river rose all day

The river rose all night

Some people got lost in the flood

Some people got away alright

The river have busted through clear down to Plaquemines

Six feet of water in the streets of Evangelne




Louisiana, Louisiana

They're tyrin' to wash us away

They're tryin' to wash us away

Louisiana, Louisiana

They're tryin' to wash us away

They're tryin' to wash us away




President Coolidge came down in a railroad train

With a little fat man with a note-pad in his hand

The President say, "Little fat man isn't it a shame

What the river has done

To this poor crackers land."




Louisiana, Louisiana

They're tryin' to wash us away

They're tryin' to wash us away

Louisiana, Louisiana

They're tryin' to wash us away

They're tryin' to wash us away

They're tryin' to wash us away

They're tryin' to wash us away
