This time FEMA may be right

CBS News:
"The head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency on Friday decried land-use restrictions that are holding up the placement of thousands of temporary trailer homes for Hurricane Katrina evacuees in much of Louisiana.

Half the state's 64 parishes _ Louisiana's equivalent of counties _ have barred such trailer parks, and most of the rest have various restrictions, FEMA said."
When the city council says NIMBY to trailers for returning evaucees, we have to side with the evacuees. Like a wise person said to me today, "If they think it's awful to have to look out their front window and see trailers, imagine what the view is like from inside the travel trailers."
