The tragedy that was virtually ignored

Posted by Richard on May 12, 2010

For five days, I've tried to write about the horrific 1000-year flood that inundated middle Tennessee and portions of Kentucky and Alabama, and that virtually destroyed the entire city of Nashville when the Cumberland River rose 48 feet. And about the shameful behavior of the national news media and the Obama administration with regard to this disaster.

But I've been a bit under the weather, and somewhat preoccupied, and I'm just not going to get it done. So I'll simply ask you to watch the two videos below. And read this. And this.

What happened in Nashville and the thousands of square miles that were flooded was a tragedy. The media's handling of the story was an outrage.

If you can spare a few bucks, please donate to the Nashville Red Cross or one of the other relief organizations mentioned at the end of the second video. Thank you.
