Katrina Blogs Provide Info

Peggy Noonan's WSJ column on Katrina is a good over-view of the political-media-individual issues. She links us to the Times-Picayune blog that has timely articles on up-to-the-minute developments in the Gulf.

Noonan on looters:

People with no food and water who are walking into supermarkets and taking food and water off the shelves are not criminal, they are sane. They are not looters, they are people who are attempting to survive; they are taking the basics of survival off shelves in stores where there isn't even anyone at the cash register.

Looters are not looking to survive; they're looking to take advantage of the weakness of others. They are predators. They're taking not what they need but what they want.

The Times-Picayune blog writes about how the people living in the Superdome are being transported to the Astrodome in Houston. A number of buses claiming to be part of the Superdome caravan were actually not from that group. Officials allowed them in anyway as their condition showed they needed help. The Astrodome was to be reserved for more than 20,000 people fleeing dangerous and filthy conditions in the Superdome. How many it will ultimately hold as more "renegade buses" come with people seeking refuge remains to be seen.

There will be stories of good deeds and bad. We should hold off the carping commenst and attitudes until next week sometime?

Bush blunders again. I hate pointing fingers in desperate times, but sometimes the obvious has to be said, especially when the blunderer chooses to be so pious. Maybe all of the displaced people can be employed to protect our borders. bimbo

Bush: It'll take years to heal
President Bush grimly warned it will take America years to recover from Hurricane Katrina, but vowed yesterday that the ships, soldiers, medical supplies, food and drinking water already on the way represent just the beginning of a massive federal response.

Well it looks like THIS thread is well and truly hijacked. So far I see three COMMERCIALS and a lengthy Blumenthal column, with yet another commercial embedded in THAT.
I'm thinking that maybe you ought to rethink this policy of letting folks post without signing their work.

"The whole Iraq war was about what, to the left? It was about oil. It was about Bush trying to go get oil. So if we went to Iraq for oil, where is it?"
