on a somewhat political bent

This is horrid: Could the N'Orleans flooding have been prevented?

People had been clamoring for raising of the levees... and there was supposed to be money for it...

And another good one: blacks loot, whites... find

Well, after all, New Orleans was mostly populated by democrats, so what was a few drowned and destroyed democrats to the republicans in power currently?

frick.
This looting shiza makes Louisiana look so fecking horrible. I want to gag.

But it's true. the blacks are looting. I haven't seen a white looter yet [on the local news...] ...It's not so much racial but logical since most of New Orleans is, in fact, black. And most of those blacks were stupid enough to stay.

*whacks head* jebus. I can't believe all those people stayed.

And to hell with 'we could have prevented this shit' articles. Those people who write that crap needs to shut up. Who cares, now? and i doubt even there 'solution' would have made much help. It was a big ass storm.

And, atleast for the southern states, gas prices will rise to $3.
woopty doo.

But it's true. the blacks are looting.

If you go to the link about the looting, the point is there are roughly an equal number of whitefolk and blackfolk "liberating" items from stores, but any time it's a whitefolk, it's "found" or "gotten", and any time it's a blackfolk it's "looted".

Those people who write that crap needs to shut up. Who cares, now?

A) it would be nice if people's heads rolled. B) it would be nice if similar situations were prevented -- which ties into people's heads rolling, potentially. Learning from your mistakes, and all that. _Admitting_ your mistakes, even.

I've actually already paid just over $3 for gas once--I think it was this month. Fun stuff.

Damn gas. :)

The first link wasn't an article--it was an exploration of all of the images posted on the AP newswire, which is a _feed_ that reporters use.

Second link was an article.

responding to things you ain't read is dangerous. ;)

it's good to be informed, or as informed as possible when there is no pure trust in anything, just weighted beliefs...

there's a billion stories of what it could really have been.

Apparently, the police force has completely collapsed now. :/

Interesting note: One of the early looting targets were the drycleaning places...

To get cop uniforms. There is a short window of time where being a cop is cart blanche to pretty much anything.

After that window closes it's a good idea to not be a cop (many real ones have in fact turned in their [stinking] badges).
