    Imagine if they were coordinated, had a central command(ish) thing going on... How long could they hold New Orleans hostage? Who's to say that it wouldn't be months and that more lives would be lost than overseas? Then, who's to say that you can blame people that have had their faces shoved in poverty their whole life. Banned, shunned and neglected by their own community, what are the chances of anyone acting similarly?
    I'm not saying it's right, because it most certainly is not, but it could happen where I live any day now because of sky-rocketing gas prices. I actually own a gas station and theft of my gas since Monday equals the last 8 months plus $40.... sigh...
    I feel empathy for the citizens, I feel the pinch in my pocket, and like 91% of my consumers I'm mad and have no outlet... I don't even understand the forces behind the mechanism for all of this - a hurricane? Give me a break. The day the storm hit, there was not one distributor of gasoline that would sell to stations here, they all quoted technical difficulties at the terminal. The technical difficulty was that gas was rising on the average of five cents an hour, and since Monday evening it has gone up 70+ cents with no end in sight. A lot of people are affected. Here, there, elsewhere. Where we could be helping we are exacerbating an already abhorrible situation.

    Ranting? No. Maybe. Who cares?

    well now that states gas is up to par with the rest of north america.... here in canada its been past the dollar mark/litre for the past three months (at least in Quebec) so whats its 4$/gallon in the states? so that would be 1$/litre if I'm not mistaken (I hope i'm not)

    The price being irrelevant, the reason being important.

    Here's something I've been listening to for most of the day - it's an internet stream of the command net down there.

    This morning you could hear all the chatter at the Superdome when they were trying to put the bus convoys together... fascinating stuff. You'd hear about people or guardsmen being shot hours before it popped up on mainstream news.

    new orleans mayor looses cool...

    New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin blasted the federal government as emotions spilled over in an angry radio interview, saying he was "pissed" at the lack of help the historic city had received.

    "I need reinforcements. I need troops, man. I need 500 buses, man," he said. "Now get off your asses and fix this. Let's do something and let's fix the biggest goddam crisis in the history of this country."

    "We authorized $8 billion to go to Iraq, lickety split. After 9/11 we gave the president unauthorized powers, lickety split to help New York and other places," he said. "You mean to tell me that a place where most of your oil is coming through ... that we can't figure out a way to authorize the resources that we need," said Nagin

    I read the transcript of most of what the mayor said and I applaud him. For once a politician is ANGRY over something happen to his people. He needs to call names, he needs to get mad, he has every right to.
