    Maybe someone already mentioned this, but on Sunday, following the WT study, a letter was read to the congregation that detailed how the rebuilding work was going in the gulf coast. This I was told was a re-read of the same letter done at the service meeting part. As I was just waking up from a good 45 min. nap during WT study, I can't repeat word for word what the letter said. I was genuinely interested in hearing the letter because I wanted to know how many jw's were injured and/or killed and how many were displaced and how they were doing. Well, the brother reading the letter starts of by saying that all will be happy to know that to date 1,_ _ _ (I don't remember the exact number) KH's were damaged and have been repaired with many more to be worked on. (um, about the "friends"?) He then says that over 1,000 homes have been repaired by the WTS thanks to the hard work of the volunteer workers. ( um...what about the people???) Oh and by the way(my words), unfortunately there have been almost 2,000 families displaced by the disaster. So in a letter that is supposed to update us on the condition of the friends affected by Katrina, we hear about the status of the KH's first, the homes/property second, and then bringing up the rear, the people. It is as if the WTS was saying to the people, "Sure, you don't have a home to live in but cheer up, at least the KH has been repaired". Gotta hand it to the society, they sure have their priorities straight. ec

    I mean seriously, this 'style' is just not so surprising anymore.

    Nerve-racking, aggravating and irritating, yes. Surprising behavior, no.
