My apologies if I upset anybody, but this is what I commented on the
above Blog, I am tired of all the bullshit. I am angry that I cannot be
there to help these guys with what they are doing, so Mac, Johnny and
Company remember there is another side to this - being frustrated
because you cannot lift a hand to help.
"Gentlemen and Ladies,
May I draw your attention to a group of WISP (Wireless Internet Service
Providers) who before an "disaster" was declared was already delivering
"communications" to shelters. When "only 40 people" had died from
Katrina, they were on the ground and knew the tally would be in the
thousands, they knew New Orleans would not be spared. These are the men
and women who were on the ground running before FEMA and the President
was properly briefed. They were the ones, with donations from other
WISP's and related services who started the first communications. Don't
be fooled by the "BIG GUYS" PR Dept. because they were a full week or
more behind these WISPS, but we don't have a PR dept. who only sees this
as a marketing opportunity.
Please visit the site of these wisps - <a
our parent org. <a href="http://www.wispa.org.">http://www.wispa.org.</a>
Please note I find it very distressing to see these unsung heroes not
These people have been working eighteen hour days, using their own
resources to deliver these communication services."
So guys just keep your heads high and know that where ever I see you not
being recognized, I will pipe up in my normal abrasive rude self and
tell the true story. For those of you like me who cannot help, I
believe this is the way we can do it. Call your local radio/tv station
and newspaper and make them tell Mac, Johnny and Company's true story.
Ok I feel better now :-[
You have a Good Day now,
