|We,re told that the folks who wish to stay will be denied food, water and electricity 'for their own good.' Not mentioned is that they are also being denied the preventative shots that the armed forces, rescue workers, and eventually the rebuilders of New Orleans are receiving before they even enter the city. Shots that would protect them, to some degree, from the same illnesses that the government says they are in danger of contracting if they stay. This may turn out being the biggest and most shameful forced migration since the Trail of Tears.|
