San Diego Wildfires: why is the response better?

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.
