FEMA Foul

How the Saints stumbled and how LSU reclaimed the number one ranking makes for morning fodder while former Saints head coach Jim Haslett has his own words coaching opposite the Saints.

However, what folks ought to be talking about it is how FEMA continues to neglect and disparage the lives of folks living on the Gulf Coast. Last week it was revealed that FEMA forbid its own employees from entering stored trailers due to toxic fumes yet the agency continues to allow

tens of thousands of Gulf Coast residents to remain in the very same trailers. Already being sued by residents in a collective suit, FEMA was also criticized when the news broke by Senator Mary Landrieu. There has already been documented cases of physical illness suspected to be related to the toxic trailers. While others have tested levels of toxic chemicals, FEMA has halted its delayed/proposed testing indefinitely.
