At times, I really despair about the human race. Today's case in point, from an article about the current status of cleanup in Galveston after Hurricane Ike:
[Person] said he had tried three different times in the last 24 hours to get on the island. He said he waited in line for three hours before his final rejection Wednesday. "I don't understand this. You see those other people," [Person] said, waiving at utility workers and contractors being let on to the island. "They don't even live here, I live in Galveston."
Now, I can understand being upset and concerned about the status your home is in, after something like Ike. But ye cats, people! The mayor and other city officials have been evacuating even the people who stayed on the island because the infrastructure in Galveston can't support them. The utility workers and contractors this person is complaining about are the very people needed to get things back into condition for people like him to return.
What about this is so hard to understand?
