Ignore religion. What does reality teach you about the value of human life?
Apparently human life has no "special" value. If you take a human and throw them
in front of a bus, they will get squashed just as easily as a dog would.
I find it amusing how many humans seem to think that we have some sort of
"special" status, that OUR lives are protected or something, when there's no
evidence to support such a notion. We are just as fragile as all the other
mammals, maybe even more fragile than some.
Maybe you can tell that to the two officers who couldn't take it anymore and
committed suicide because the situation was so bad. Or those who handed in
their badges. Or to the cops that used their police headquarters as a fort
because they were outmanned and outgunned.

On 8/27/2005 the Governor was ask did she want Federal Rescue and Aid to be
coming into the City. She said NO send me $9 Million Dollars and we will fix it.
the Hurrican has passed over at this timer.
On 9/02/2005 Governor Blanco finally ask for Federal Aide to comer in. How long
does it take to figure out you're in trouble and need help ? 5 days is a long
time to think about it before calling for federal Aide.
No matter how rich or poor, we all (Err... well, there are *SOME*
unfortunate exceptions, but that's exactly what they are: exceptions)
come equipped with two feet and can start walking and/or hitchhiking to
get someplace else. Don't even *TRY* to give me the bullshit "They were
too poor to leave" whine. The *ONLY* ones who can't leave anytime they
want to bad enough are those with broken bodies, and those under
restraint. (Thinking specifically of prison/jail inmates, though there
may be the rare "other reason for being restrained" types) Everybody
else, no matter how rich or poor, is free to come and go by whatever
method happens to work, whether that means a private jet, a luxury motor
home, a 20 year old, oil-belching Datsun clunker that calls making 35
MPH a damn fine run, a bicycle, or shank's mare.
