    • For a point of clarification I for one do not want to cast judgment on your comment but would like you to clarify your statement and with specifics so that I and my family can understand what you are trying to say.

      My family is one of these families that was hit directly by the tragedy of this hurricane and you may be talking on credible information that I am not aware of, so I for one would be interested in what you mean by money blowing in the wind.

      There has been funds awarded to family members to assist in things as far as education, so clarify and I will gladly take my comments further beyond that when you respond.
