Interesting point - using third world country v. developing country. I never realized it as derogatory.

I tend to stay away from the TV so I am just recently learning about how bad the situation is in the South. I had been hearing comparisons between the hurricane and the tsunami and thinking "no way." But in terms of lack of professional assistance like the National Guard, etc. those people are almost as bad off as the tsunami victims. At least on the short-term, but not on the long-term. The poor in America are relatively rich compared to the poor in developing countries.

I totally agree on the comparison to the Tsunami. If I remember correctly, wasn't there no warning when the tsunami hit? But, yeah, the poor in the US are better off than the poor in developing nations, and even in some other developed nations.
