But now I'm going to make more of an effort to hit Mardi Gras. Anyone want to go with me?

I'm so happy to hear that.


Mardi Gras, 2006? I'm there, girlie.

Unless the two block breach in Bucktown is fixed, New Orleans which is already 80% flooded according to Mayor Nagin will destroy the City of New Orleans. In my view, that includes the CBD and French Quarter.

With water increasing one inch every five minutes at Tulane Medical Center which is a mere six blocks from the CBD and the fring of the French Quarter, with the pumping station in New Orleans being inoperative and with so much of New Orleans flooded and bodies floating in the water increasing presumably by the moment due to flooding, one can only imagine that inevitable. New Orleans must fix the breach, fix the pumping, hope for a major sun-baked elimination of the water.

New Orleans might not be able to survive the total inundation of water that is rising so quickly and causing so much damage. With Slidell, St. Bernard and other cities and Parishes so completely devastated it will take more than a Marshall Plan to restore Louisiana to its glory. It will take a miracle for the city of the Saints.

Martial Law has been declared in New Orleans and they're ordering everybody out of the city.

Water is rising and they dont know where its coming from or how to stop it, military is coming in to aid in the evacuation.

Wow. Marital law.
Terrible.

Is the water fast moving or just slowing seeping in? Does anyone know?

How many years do you think it will take to rebuild the city? Will there be anything left?

The lack of news is due to the extreme devastation. Unfortunately, this is almost certainly the worst natural disaster in U.S. history.

Widespread looting in the areas of the city that are not totally underwater.

Fuck.

They likely won't have their new loot for long, as the water is still rising and New Orleans may be evacuated for months.
