In NOLA
I'm not at triage point. It was closed down last night--too few survivors now.


I'm at a NOPD precinct office. Mission is now to care for Cops/Fire/Rescue.

They are running on fumes, but deny anything is wrong. Main problems are podiatric and psych. Psych self-explanatory. Feet problems due to toxic soup.

Two NOPD dogs drank from flood water--dead within hours.

Cops have chemical burns on exposed skin.

Blackwater Security is here--clean, well-equipped, and armed to the teeth.

2 cop suicides so far. I was told by "head" doc that one was a search & rescue guy who went home to find family drowned.

Tragic stories abound--more tonight
and...
Haven't we been told by everyone in the malAdministration that we are "accomplishing amazing breakthroughs in rebuilding Iraq" in the face of a guerrilla insurgency?

Does that mean that Iraq Relief is worth weathering automatic weapons fire and IED's, but New Orleans relief can be stymied by a couple of guys with rifles stolen from WalMart?
