Account From The Superdome

This was sent to me by a friend. It was written by his daughter, and is a first hand look at what went on in the Superdome. An exerpt:

Two friends of mine went to New Orleans last weekend, and refused to listen when told to evacuate. They decided to stick it out in their French Quarter hotel. During the actual storm, their window blew out, but the hotel stayed solid. Monday, the two decided to leave and seek shelter. They walked to I-10, where hundreds were already standing and waiting. Between them and the Superdome was rising water, but the situation on the road looked bad, so they trekked out through the water to the Dome.
Read the whole thing. Really scary!

Been to Orleans, France several times, however had never been to New Orleans. We were staying in Biloxi for 5 weeks this summer (before Katrina..long sad story) and had a wonderful time. We ventured into New Orleans twice. Once to pick up our daughter and granddaughter at the airport (and saw the D-Day Museum...which was very impressive) and then we went back to see the zoo. BOTH times, my wife and I had a bad feeling about New Orleans. No only did it appear very shabby most everywhere, but the people seemed to radiate anger, unhappiness, directionlessness and ignorance. Certainly I am painting a broad brush "feeling", and am confident that there must be some good and decent people in that city. However, I wouldn't bet my life on it. I doubt I will ever go back.

I'm going to say something terribly insensitive. Yes, I know it's hard to believe, but here it is....

Today I watch very frustrated rescue workers pleading with people to get out of their flooded home and to come with them to safety. Many residents refused choosing to stay in homes that were up to five or more feet in sewage. The rescuers were beside themselves.

How do I feel about that? Well, you can't save stupid people from themselves. If they want to die, that's their choice. I hope they do it before they pass on their genes.
