On the ground ...

... this guy is somehow maintaining a livejournal live and direct from New Orleans. Check this s#&t out:

The people are so desperate that they're doing anything they can think of to impress the authorities enough to bring some buses. These things include standing in single file lines with the eldery in front, women and children next; sweeping up the area and cleaning the windows and anything else that would show the people are not barbarians.

The buses never stop.

Not on TV.

He says it's the slowest mandatory evacuation ever, and he wants to know why they were told to go to the Convention Center area in the first place; furthermore, he reports that many of them with cell phones have contacts willing to come rescue them, but people are not being allowed through to pick them up.

Not on TVgoddamit.

I'm angry and yet I can feel it ringing false. If the government was screwing up last week when nothing dramatic was wrong, why should this week be any different?

Garbage in, garbage out as the saying goes.


Also, is it wrong that I find all the comments boring and pointless? It's either "teh govt. suxx0rs!!11" or "this is the real story right here". I mean, so? What we need to be doing is levees fixed, food/medicine in and people out. Everything else is just hot air.


Speaking of hot air, I shall now spew some:

New Orleans is essentially a feral city now.

Just a little puff. Sorry.

Razor, they really are refusing to let anyone who comes to help in.

Kelli & I were seriously thinking about going - but Kelli said she was told we would be refused any access.

Nice, huh? Let's "help"... but only with big ol dollars... nothing personal like showing up and rescuing my family and pets. Thanks.

Fuckers piss me off.
