I'm curious. Where are all the stories of rape and pillaging in New York? How come nobody's really blaming anybody for the power not being back on? Have we gotten so much better at disaster preparedness after Katrina under The One, or is the media giving Obama a pass like they did with BP? It must be hard on the media to convey the enormity of Hurricane Sandy and inspire people to donate and pitch in, while at the same time acting like it's not really a big deal and assigning zero blame to anybody for whatever it is we are expected to blame people for in the case of a disaster.

I guess the other possibility is that people in New Orleans are just horrible, but that seems like the kind of generalization you're not really allowed to make.
