Re: Andy Burroughs’ Sept. 2 letter, “Where are offers of aid”:
Andy Burroughs is disgusted that no other country offered to help us in the wake of Katrina. In fact, there have been many offers of aid from other countries, some as early as the day after the storm, when, according to Yahoo news, Hugo Chavez of Venezuela offered food, fuel and water.
The error was not really on the part of Mr. Burroughs, however, as I did not see any of this reported in the mainstream media. The real question is: In the interest of having an informed population, why were these offers not reported by The Star?
