The mississippi river has flooded and much of Iowa is under water. I find it interesting that we are not hearing about looting and rioting and "gangs" terrorizing the streets. What I have seen, and you have to really look, is communities banding together to protect the levees. I see citizens banding together to keep thier communities safe and help those who need help. The media has become so frustrated with all the "feel good" stories of people coming together that they have now resorted to focussing on the few who want to blame the federal government. The media loved Hurricane Katrina because they could blame FEMA and/or George Bush. What we had in New Orleans is the result of life long welfare. Communities who cannot take care of themselves because the government does everthing for them.

There have been stories that some families who were relocated to the Iowa area because of Katrina, still just stood by and watched while others tried to fix the levees and take care of eachother.
