We are in the middle of hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to November 30.  As we watch the devastation of Dorian, for some it is a reminder of the destruction 14 years ago in New Orleans.  During the George W. Bush administration it was Katrina that flooded the Big Easy with scores seeking help and people being warehoused in the Superdome and the Convention Center.  1,833 people lost their lives.
