9-2023 Update: It's over a decade since this saga occurred. I have never heard a peep from anyone at any level in this country. No acknowledgement, no compassion, no apology.
Well--no surprise that our country is in the state it's in. All was preventable and hence all the more comical. Shame on all who could have helped turn it around....but said nothing and did nothing! The reap is what is sown.
