That is so sad... I cannot believe how long it is taking state and federal agencies to step in and get things back on track. Last I heard over 100k people are STILL without power.

I pictured a convoy of mobile homes heading towards the Jersey/NY shore to give these people somewhere hospitable to live until their lives can be rebuilt.

The red SLK has just been on UK TV - a trailer for 'Sandy - The Storm That Shook The USA' that will be shown on Discovery tomorrow.

State and federal agencies are all talk and now show in disaster situations. Those who lost everything in Sandy should look to their neighbors and friends for help....or plan on waiting a year for some half measure of govenment assistance.

A few years ago Wabash river levees failed and flooded most of southern Illinois. The Army Corp of Engineers refused to help our local citizens and said their resources were needed more elsewhere. They also refused to fully repair the damaged levees resulting in another catastrophic flood 2 years ago. Local farmers recently fixed the levees at their own expense out of shear frustration....the government is still in the planning stage!

I am sure the owner of that car is just sick about his or her car. My previous SLK was totaled by another driver this past August, so the feeling of losing an SLK is still very much with me.
