Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Thank you, Colman.  As I said below, this was a HOT topic in the U.S. for some time.  And now everyone's forgotten about it -- from the media to the politicians.  And, apparently, the State Dept. and the president.

I forget that, in other countries, people are unused to the short attention span of the U.S. towards international matters -- and domestic matters as well.  I give Katrina/Rita maybe five to six months tops, and then that entire tragedy will fall off the radar.
