Just saw the Red Cross passing out checks to Katrina victims. Looked like some happy ............campers.

What kinda cash ya think these folks are getting?

A women was talking about using it to rebuild......?.....I wouldn't think they'd be handing out chunks like that.

What size chunks? By the time that FEMA got to me, they had reams of paperwork. I let everything go because it was costing me more than it was worth.

The only dollar amounts I ever heard were the $2000 vouchers from fema about 3 weeks ago and the $1500 vouchers to Wallmart from fema, only reason I even heard about it was because I saw a story how some people were going to Walmart with thier voucher and spending it, then returning every back to another Walmart for the cash.

I'd read our government tracked some of that cash given to NOLA victims in $2,000 increments and an incredible amount of that cash was being spent in liquor stores and strip clubs.
