Overheard in Line at Walgreen's

Man on his cell phone: "They finally get power hooked up in their trailer and FEMA's not giving them the keys to their trailer. They go through all these hurdles just to get electricity five months after the disaster that destroyed their house, and FEMA won't give them their keys."

How can any reputable news organization in America not be writing or reporting about this? Why are we almost nowhere in the national headlines now?

Why have we again been left for dead?

Why is it that when I go to Long Island for the holidays, I have to listen to an inordinate amount of bitching about the MTA strike, which lasted three days? Why is having to walk to work rather than ride a subway, bus or train for three days worth ranting over, but the criminal neglect of this city is a footnote?
