“Our Tsunami”

I see that some people in the US are describing the effects of Hurricane Katrina as “our tsunami“. Now I don’t want to minimise what has happened in New Orleans over the last few days in any way, but lets get some bloody proportion here. Look at the numbers. Current estimates of deaths caused by Katrina are running into the hundreds. The best estimate of the number of people killed by the tsunami is 150,000.

I wonder if the Bush family will be changing their opinion on the causes of the hurricane soon?
