Perche' non si mettono in salvo?

A proposito di Katrina, Volker Weber fa una riflessione che si sente spesso in questi giorni. Eccola:

When the WTC towers collapsed you could see people walking over the bridges out of Manhattan. When the tube was closed down in London, people started walking. But when I look at the pictures from News Orleans, I see people sitting in front of the convention center doing absolutely nothing. They are throwing around their trash, they don’t try to organize clean areas and dirty ones, they are not walking out over the bridge that happens to be right in front of the convention center. Is that because people in New York and London knew that they were walking home or is it that these people need to be told what to do? Why can’t they take their life into their own hands and walk out of there?
