A decade on and Hurricane Katrina is still with us’ and Brad Pitt’s relief homes are rotting

Scott and Kimberly Roberts clung to each other in the attic of their clapboard home, praying the gale-force winds and rising flood water would not carry them away.

With shaking hands, they captured the moment they were hit by Hurricane Katrina – one of the fiercest storms in living memory – on a $20 camera they had bought just days before.

    But what about Cecil the lion?

    If you’re ‘still struggling’ 10 years later there is something wrong with you.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Yeah, after a decade this is no longer an actual struggle. It is an African-American demonstration – like a Black Lives Mattr demo – about “Black Struggle In Racist White America”. And few people actually are buying it.

    • Exactly.

    It seems the author of this article would like the government to do more to encourage it’s subjects to re-settle back into the ashes of Pompeii a mere 10 years later, and nitwits like Brad Pitt agree. Haven’t the dependent class had six years of St. Obama – why hasn’t he helped them yet? Or is the evil shadow of Bushhitlersatan still such a strong influence over current events?

    The smart ones moved out and moved on.

    Mike Holmes built those home with him, I wonder what he has to say about this?

    A very deceptive and biased effort from the Telegraph.
    Katrina’s landfall did not occur in New Orleans as implied and the mayor and governor then were, shall we gently say, somewhat ineffectual, if not utterly corrupt.

      Not even an attempt at a good deed goes unpunished in ObamAmerica.

    Have a neighbor who went to help two years ago with his Church. Neighbor was appalled that ‘victims’ did not want to work with the Church members ; expected Church members to ‘fix everything’. Neighbor said ‘never again’.

    Story has it that the main reason the flooding was so bad thru the Midwest down to the delta was that Hillary took all the dykes to Washington.
