It could also be because folks are burned out on the coverage.

What, are some expecting Obama and the taxpayers to 'rebuilt' everything the way it was? Build back the community in a flood plain six feet above sea level that will get wiped out again in the next big one?

or Obama out there stringing electric wires himself?

I'm sure the weekly magazines will have half the issue devoted to coverage of Sandy.

You can only show so many destroyed houses before folks eyes glaze over. It's the same story in just about every 'shore town' .....and there are 10,000 destroyed houses and 10,000 stories....and 10,000 house owners looking for answers.

Unlike Katrina where many found 'fault' for failed levees...in this case....it was all predictable. A 11 foot wall of water in Manhattan.....14 feet along the Jersey shore with waves on top.....a 'storm surge' which is not unusual...... Much of Long Island was destroyed in the 1932 hurricane. Coney Island was wiped out.

You just built housing for a million people right along the shore and right at six feet above sea level or less.


I'm not sure what the tragedy is, other than building codes allowed it, and still allow folks to rebuild in the same disaster prone areas.
