Haves leave. Have nots stay

When they give evacuation orders what do you suppose people do who don’t own automobiles or have enough money to buy tickets on public transportation?

Seems to me recent evacuations assume most people have cars or somehow can buy their way out. Looking at the videos from New Orleans it looks like there’s a lot of poor people that were stuck there. I guess the alternative for the largely invisible and rarely considered poor was walk to the Superdome.

Haves leave. Have nots stay.

Their ought to be a better way.
