Katrina as preview of coming attractions



My most often googled post is the one on surviving the coming depression. If things degenerate, people believe they can survive by stocking food and owning a gun to protect themselves - didn't work in New Orleans. Incidentally, the news media said that frail old lady was a threat because if she stayed to protect her dogs, bacteria would cause her to spread disease.

On the other side is this great essay on our Rambo mentality.

    Jay Bookman is totally correct. These people are scared to death of their own shadows - of their own neighbors.
