BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Local reaction to Senator Harry
Reid's comments continued to roll in on Monday.
"Think a little more before you
speak, they teach you that in Kindergarten," said St. Francisville resident
Whether he thought it through or
not, Reid's words are still ringing loudly across the state.
"The people of New Orleans and
that area were hurt. But nothing in comparison to what happened to the people
of New Jersey and New York," said Reid on Friday.
The comparison of the two
disasters doesn't sit well with McNeal. More than 1,800 people lost their lives
during Katrina and 120 died in connection with Sandy, but McNeal believes it's unnecessary
to try and put a measure on human suffering.
"I don't understand the
comparison, it would be like me trying to compare a death in my family to a
death in her family or your family. It's a tragedy either way and it shouldn't
be compared one to the other," said McNeal.
State Senator Danny Martiny goes
a step further and believes the message was something he has come to expect
"When you go to football games up
there and they tell you that you should have drowned you hear a lot of stupidity.
You just hope you don't hear it out of our nation's leaders and unfortunately
with Harry Reid that's what you get," said Martiny.
Reid has since addressed his
comments and stated on Monday that he simply misspoke but according to former
New Orleans resident Wendell Lewis there would be no need for retraction if
Reid just chose his words more carefully.
"I lost a grandmother in
Hurricane Katrina so for him to say that it's very insulting, very insulting
but I don't hold grudges just watch what you say next time," said Lewis.
