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.

Here in Oz we've had pouty Aussie tourists complaining that our government didn't do anything to rescue them.
A) What were they supposed to do?
B) You're tourists, you went on holiday, you took a risk. You sort it out yourselves! The Aussie govt isn't responsible for every damn problem you get yourself into, and the US govt has got its own people to worry about.
C) They were in a bloody hotel. There were people dead or with their homes destroyed, but these guys are pissed off that they're stuck in shelter and safety and their holiday was spoiled. There's just no sense of perspective.
D) No, really, what was our govt supposed to actually do for a bunch of people who were pretty well off compared to god only knows how many other people who were in real danger?

Ugh. Whiners.
