Don't tell me it isn't about race

These people were trying to get on the last bus out of Key West before Hurricane Rita passed through yesterday. Screwed again by a system that throws them away. Via BAGnewsNotes.

Fortunately, Rita didn't hit the Keys directly:

It was almost as if she was stopping to take breaths between blasts. Calm followed each moment of fury.

Rita would blow hard for 10 minutes, bending trees, pushing the sea onto streets and gently rocking parked cars. Then, right before it seemed the sky was about to unhinge, the wind would quiet, giving all a chance to straighten and almost stop swaying. South Florida Sun Sentinel

So she blows on to Texas (or even more awfully, Louisiana again.) Who will be left behind this time?
