Just a little note here. The NAACP has started complaining about the use of the word refugees to describe the people who were evacuated from their homes because of Hurricane Katrina.

First off these people are refugees. They are people seeking refuge, therefore refugees. Relax its just a word. I know Queen Oprah commanded her legion of obidient women to not use the word. But I don't care, really I don't. Something as utterly meaningless as semantics shouldn't be an issue at all right now. People need help. There are thousands of scared, confused, sick and hungry people out there. It doesn't matter what they are called. We need to hike up our britches , reach into our wallets and help them return to normalcy.

People should be offended by the local, state and federal governments slow reaction to such an enormous catasrophe. That's what should have everyones blood pressure rising not a word.
