Saints Fans March All Over Insurance Companies

by Ana Maria

Having grown up in Saints country, I'm typical of the people in the greater New Orleans area. I love the Saints. I was never so proud as I was the day we all got to take the virtual paper bags off of our heads years back. Then, last year the Saints did the area proud by going all the way to the semi finals of the Super Bowl.

In an area completely abandoned* and left to drown in water that by midnight the day before the levees flooded the great city of New Orleans, I am ever so much more proud because on the Saints' Report akking an Forum, fellow fans are yakking and yakking about the Multiple Peril Insurance Act of 2007 that Congressman Taylor (D-MS) has proposed. ("Yakking" is local speak for talking, chatting.) The thread is titled Congress battling with insurance industry over wind insurance policy reform. Click the link and read the thread.

We are known for our fierce loyalty to our local football team come hell or high water. This thread shows our fierce loyalty to the New Orleans--Gulf Coast region and to our country. . . and our street smarts about politics.

* The New York Times article titled White House Knew of Levee's Failure on Night of Storm published February 10, 2006. Greg Palast's Big Easy to Big Empty is the Untold Story of the Drowning of New Orleans including the fact that Bush's White House knew that the levees were breaking and about to drown the city . . . and did not tell officials with the state of Louisiana or the city of New Orleans.
