    I heard that not honoring a confirmed reservation by a hotel is against the law.
    I wonder if this event will cause the next Great Depression? If the St. Andreas Faults cracks before this mess is sorted out, the end is nigh!

    Why would they even consider calling these 2 events? The levees obviously failed due to water/wind. Proximate cause of loss is Katrina. Would the levees have failed without the hurricane? Looking for another pocket?

    Hey! Don’t expect logic and common sense to play a role. Two events mean more deuctibles and more layers to share the costs to say nothin gof the litgation to follow. I just wonder how much help we get from our friends and allies around the world and the UN. America always helps others after natural disasters but will we be on our own for the most part? Yes, I’m embarrassed as an America with the looting and crime but at the same time close to one million may lose home, work, history and a piece of their identity. And this is on top f the 1,000 lives. Wow! meanwhile, Certain hotels inn Tallahassee evict refugees so registered guests can come to town foran FSU/Miami football game. Missplaced priorities?? why not sell your tickets on e-bay donate to charity and let the refugees keep the rooms. I wonder when & where we lost our sense of right and wrong and goodwill towards men.

    I don’t find that it’s a matter of right and wrong as much as it’s an eye opener for american’s and countries alike. When caose hits all ethics and sense of citizenship (for lack of a better word) goes out the window and we basically go back to the way our pre-historic ancestors lived. We (the people in New Orleans) have become barbaric and it’s kind of scary when you think about how quickly this transaction took
