Chertoff called federal efforts "phenomenally better" than the 2005 response to Hurricane Katrina "because we have been preparing and planning and training together for the last 2 ½ years."
No, Mr. Chertoff. The response is better because the people in New Orleans were overwhelmingly black and poor. The people in San Diego are well-off, white, Republicans, and there's a naval base there. That's why the response is better. You actually care about the people in San Diego.
