Poor little tourists (scroll down).
The tourists are an afterthought here," said Bill Hedrick, from Houston, who had been in the city on business.

"We're appalled," said Jill Johnson, a 53-year-old from Saskatoon. "This city is built on tourism, and we're their last priority."


You know, that just might be because YOU STILL HAVE HOMES TO GO TO. Jesus Christ. Ordinarily I'd feel sorry for people stuck in such a dreadful situation who are unable to get home, but to act like you've got more right to help than people who have lost every single thing they own? Pricks.

I can't find the section you quoted (maybe the link moved) but I don't have a lot of sympathy for tourists either. It would be a horrible situation, but once they get out of New Orleans, they can go home and go back to their lives. The residents can't.

(Plus, unlike many residents, tourists presumably had the money and resources to leave before the storm.)
