Historically, humans get serious about avoiding disasters only after one has just struck them. __62__ that logic, 2006 should have been a breakthrough year for rational behavior. With the memory of 9/11 still __63__ in their minds, Americans watched hurricane Katrina, the most expensive disaster in U.S. history, on __64__ TV. Anyone who didn't know it before should have learned that bad things can happen. And they are made __65__ worse by our willful blindness to risk as much as our __66__ to work together before everything goes to hell.

Granted, some amount of delusion(?)is probably part of the __67__ condition.

We know more than we __71__ did about the dangers we face. But it turns __72__ that in times of crisis, our greatest enemy is __73__ the storm, the quake or the __74__ itself. More often it is ourselves.

Meanwhile,New Orleans offcials have crafted a plan to use buses and trains to __79__ the sick and the disabled.The city estimates that 15,000 people will need a __80__ out.However,state officials have not yet determined where these people will be taken.The __81__ with neighboring communities are on going and difficult.
