How are 9/11 and Kartina related?

Karen Breitweiser and Monica Gabrielle know. Read the letter from two 9/11 widows in the NY Times.

"In Katrina's aftermath, our leaders, much like in the days after 9/11, continue to say that the time will come to look back and examine failures and hold people accountable for the thousands who have been unnecessarily injured, made sick or killed.

As 9/11 widows who are still waiting for accountability when it comes to our nation's failures to prepare, prevent and mitigate damage from the Sept. 11 attacks, we don't accept these hollow promises. We urge Americans to demand accountability now for the government's response to this natural disaster."

Same song, different verse. "There will be time . . . to prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet."
