|Five days after Susan Dewey arrived in New Orleans to celebrate her birthday, she was so desperate to get out that she banded with hundreds of other tourists to hire 10 buses for $25,000 to rescue them. After waiting hours, they learned government officials had commandeered their buses to evacuate others. 'We're the forgotten about,' Dewey told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Thursday. 'The Louisiana officials are trying to get their people out. They don't care about us.' AND THEY TELL US THEY HAVE NO SHORTAGE OF EQUIPMENT -- TRUCKS, BUSES, HELICOPTERS, AMBULANCES, ETC -- BUT TRUTH IS -- THEY ARE IN IRAQ.|
