The Dependent State

On the second anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, local relief agencies in north Texas are complaining that aid for victims of the storm has "slowed to a trickle."

Two years is a long time. I don't think that any reasonable person would oppose short term assistance to the victims of the hurricane from both public and private sources; however, this would seem to be an instance where the availability of aid may actually prevent people from taking the steps needed to move on with their lives.
