Operation Blue Blood (2005)

During the first week of September 2005, the world watched the footage of Hurricane Katrina's New Orleans victims stranded on rooftops for days, crowded into the Convention Center and Superdome. Most of them were poor. Fulana asked themselves, What if the hurricane had hit a wealthy area instead?
