Question Just curious: how rest of US is viewing Wilma aftermath

Hey anyone; It's been 11 days after Hurricane Wilma hit us and we just got power back on 2 days ago, but still no TV 'cause cable is out and local radio is not worth listening to.
I'm curious how National media is viewing south Florida aftermath. Do they even mention it? What's the view from the "outside"?

Pretty much what BHD pointed out.

Even very little about Katrina these days except for tidbits about the New Orleans rebuilding issues...never mind that other areas were hit even harder...

Not a mention of Wilma on the news over on this coast.

Just the usual news of people running red lights while on a cell phone and broadsiding a bus. Third time in one week since the bus expressway has been active.

Its sort of depressing I miss the clips from Blitzer like thins one. You almost get excited about hurricanes to see what the stupid people in the media will do.
