before nanci's reply i'd seen margie's post and wondered if it would end up being interpreted that way. not very surprising, since it doesn't have the canned sensitivity people are expected to include in their comments when speaking about such things. it's true that making glib or insensitive comments about another's misfortune is callous, but how much sympathy do you really need when you choose to live in a hurricane prone zone? it's not like a random tornado took a chunk out of your house.. over time things like hurricanes happen in florida, on the gulf, here in the carolinas (though not in georgia lately, it seems). do people who move to siberia get sympathy if they complain that it snows too much? i guess the thing to take home from this is not to sound too excited or amicable about things that bring ruin to others... and not to expect pity from random folks that your dice roll of living on the gulf or southeast coast came up bad. nobody in their right mind is happy about what katrina did--it's common sense that people feel bad about it. problem is, things are what they are, no matter how you feel about them. confucius say.
