Warning: you may want to claw your eyes out.

Yes, response time to Katrina in New Orleans was less swift than to the July 7 bombings over here, and yes that was appalling. But surely the two events are hardly on the same scale to warrant any comparison at all (the effect of the bombings on London is pitiful compared to what's happened in Louisiana - and if anything to that scale occurred here I'd be surprised if there wasn't any looting. London may have been blitzed in WWII, but I doubt Hiroshima survivors would be impressed). And as for that triumphalist tone...

Whoever wrote that editorial is, quite frankly, an insensitive cunt.
