Trent Lott was on The Daily Show recently, holding himself very well against Jon and generally being surprisingly likeable. While on the show, they talked briefly about Katrina and how it affected Lott, who lost his house. Well, over at Desiring Machine, Gordon’s got an interesting post about Lott taking on the insurance companies. It would seem that insurance companies will cover damage from the winds of a hurricane, but not the flooding of a hurricane, and are denying boatloads of people any kind of coverage, claiming the damage was flooding based, and not the Cat-4 winds. And surprise, surprise, they’re upset that someone in power has said “enough” and is doing something about it.
Anyhow, go read what Gordon has to say – easier than me repeating it here.
