Disaster Management and Hurricane Floyd

Richmond residents c. 1999 might remember Hurricane Floyd. The issue of disaster response came up right at the beginning of the debate and Kaine made reference to his response to Floyd. Kilgore offered a biting rebuttal, stating that Kaine or someone in City government forgot about the homeless.

Over at the Withering Look, MPH digs up a number of references on how the City, under Kaine and the other Great Minds on council, utterly dropped the ball.

MPH really needs to do oppo research for someone. He's good. And quick.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
