Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
  1. I don't think Katrina history is the issue here. I'm writing about our reactions to these situations.   Please see response to Coleman above.  However, in response to your question, it's thought to be about 1000 in the state of Louisiana.  Katrina is of course a natural disaster, and there are many issues in the count, explained in this article, and here's an earlier article, Katrina Death Toll May Not Be As High as Feared
  2.  "Help was offered at the time of the flood, and was treated with contempt."  Curious what this was all about?  Do you have a link?  I didn't see anything other than a somewhat bogus report about a British food offer that I saw in a tabloid.  But I would love to read about this.
  3.  I, and the people I know, are certainly not wallowing in satisfaction about these French problems?  And I think we're still trying to understand how big the problem is.  What kind of help do you mean?
