[Update:] WOW! Maybe things didn't go perfectly! A County Judge in Beaumont has told police to use FORCE to TAKE supplies from FEMA!!
County Judge Carl Griffith said today he has become so frustrated with the federal relief effort that he has instructed all local officials to use police force if they have to to take supplies from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

"If you have enough policemen to take it from them, take it," Griffith said.

Update: Texas KOS member Ari Mistral is a from Beaumont. He's fine (not sure about property). Please know that there are Kossacks in the affected region that need your help. Donations given for Katrina are by law required to go for Katrina relief. I'm not sure the need for Rita's donations, but stayed tuned & help where you can. The best way to ensure funds go to Rita is to include it on the Memo field of your check.

Frankly, things went well. I apologize to the East Texas/Beaumont people who are suffering from Rita. I did not know things were not "going well" as the Update indicates. People by the 100s didn't die (it amazing that 100s need to die for us to start getting concerned but anyway...).

Hurricane Rita took a hard right and spared the densely populated Galveston/Houston region.

So everyone should be happy right? We "won". Nothing important here, move on.

Right?

Wrong. Here's why. I'm in Houston & I'm already hearing it: "It was a bogus evacuation. Pointless. I ain't gonna get stuck in traffic for 20 hours again!"
