New Orleans descended into anarchy Thursday, as corpses lay abandoned in street medians, fights and fires broke out and storm survivors battled for seats on the buses that would carry them away from the chaos. The tired and hungry seethed, saying they had been forsaken.
“This is not a FEMA operation. I haven’t seen a single FEMA guy,” [New Orleans’ emergency operations chief Terry Ebbert] said. He added: “We can send massive amounts of aid to tsunami victims, but we can’t bail out the city of New Orleans.”
Bloody, awful, terrible disgrace. I’m not one for over-reacting, but there will be an accounting for this week very soon for every twit that dropped the ball.
