FEMA's argument, contained in a retort to comments made by Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal last week, is that basically the responsibility for the problem lies with the storm victims of Louisiana, who gobbled up food and water at an "extraordinary" rate after Gustav swept through."
The governor made it clear that "it is nutty to tell the people of south Louisiana that we are simply eating too much and are choosing MREs over our terrific local cuisine," Jindal's spokeswoman Melissa Sellers said.
Hi, this is SkitzoLeezra of Louisiana reporting AND because I am a south Louisiana girl, I KNOW WHY so many MREs were taken: Hunters and campers now hoard them! You heard me, MREs are the perfect self-contained and chemically heated camp food and everybody wants them or knows someone who wants them. AND folks buy and sell MREs on eBay! Grab 'em while you can!
