The President's Response to Hurricane Andrew

Regarding the editorial "Andrew's Aftermath," Sept. 3: I'm surprised that the editorial condoned the inactivity of President Bush after his visit to Florida. Didn't the president, after arriving home, read the papers, listen to the radio, or watch TV for four days? Where was his staff? Why didn't he call the governor of Florida to check on the delay? The situation was and is unbelievable. Nancy Rice, Bakersfield, Calif.
