From InstaPundit: “If you’ve got a week’s supplies, and a gun, you’ll usually do okay after a disaster.”

Update: Another quote from the article that inspires a rant.
“Yes, in a sense it’s wrong, but survival is the name of the game,” said the woman, who would not identify herself. “I’ve got six grandchildren. We didn’t know this was going to happen. The water is off. We’re trying to get supplies we need.”
What do you mean you didn’t know this was going to happen. You were told days in advance the city was going to be hit by a hurricane. You were told to leave. At least if you wouldn’t follow the advice to leave you could have prepared by getting a weeks worth of groceries.
This lady is either, stupid and lasy, or just a big liar.
