About 5,500 more people could survive a major tsunami hitting the U.S. if they just walk a little faster to higher ground after roads are knocked out, a new study shows.
As we approach the end of a tumultuous calendar year, I’m thankful.
As Hurricane Isaac threatens the Gulf again, we will see if Katrina and Isaac serve as bookends of GOP hostility to federal disaster relief. An odd stance for a party that claims to “choose life” while watching people die in natural disasters rather than provide an adequate response.
No one gets out of this world alive, but we can plan to make it easier on those we leave behind.
