I'm gonna forward this link to NBC, CBS, FOX & ABC. All this focus on the violence is annoying. It could have been less chaotic. Again, I *love* what the mayor of New Orleans is doing now. But what happened before the storm? In SC and I believe in FL, there is a system by which *all* citizens are evacuated. The poorest of the poor by bus. Every door is knocked on. Those who choose to stay have to fill out a form so that they have info for next of kin; this usually changes their mind. And if not, you have the names of all the missing ahead of time. So orderly. So sensible. Where was plan like that on the local level in New Orleans?
