Sounds like the usual "compassionate conservative" solution for the urban poor.

Why do you think people are storming hospitals? I heard part of an interview with the much beleaguered mayor of NL. He suggested that the city's many drug addicts are likely going through withdrawal and are desperate for a fix. This seems like a plausible explanation to me (I can't think of another one). Presumably drug addicts without a fix are desparate people and have had the opportunity to arm themselves.

What the hell is wrong with FEMA? How hard can it possibly be to airlift water to the survivors rather than letting them die on the streets from dehydration? I cannot imagine why things have come to this several days after the hurricane struck.
