This is one of those things I wish I'd asked

McPaper beat me to the punch:
Hurricane Rita left this question: If a successful emergency evacuation involves 100-mile highway backups, motorists running out of gas and water, widespread road rage and the death of 23 seniors in a freak bus accident, what would a failure look like?
I hate to think.

  1. Your just appear to be one of those people that sit around and critcize everything.
    A failure would have looked like a New Orleans. A success is an evacuation that we have mininal loss (23 dead in a freak accident is hardly the same as over 1,000 dead from non-action) and we are able to learn from. Next time we will have gas and water available from the beginning of the evac order (something that became available towards the end).
