Welcome to Hell: An open letter to Mr. Clint Guidry of South Louisiana

This letter is sent as a wake-up call to all the Americans who are now feeling -- and rightfully so -- shafted by a system that has already cut large swaths of devastation in the world outside the U.S. (Yes, contrary to what many Americans think, there is a world outside the U.S.)... We are surprised, for instance, that hell should have come to South Louisiana. We understand when other nations struggle with high unemployment, food riots, chronic poverty, appalling rates of child malnutrition. That’s them. Those poor, benighted, backward nations. (Underneath is the unspoken assumption: it’s their own damn fault for not managing their affairs better).
