Chaos:

No power.

No drinkable water.

Dead bodies floating in the water.

Prisons, hospitals, the Superdome are being evacuated.

Looting in plain view of the police and the National Guard.

New Orleans councilwoman Jackie Clarkson: “The looting is out of control.

I’ve now seen two reports that WWL is reporting that a looter shot a police officer in the back of the head. Still waiting for confirmation.

Below the Beltway: “I’ve always feared what would happen if a major American city simply collapsed. It appears that we are finding out.”

And the water is still rising.

Josh Trevino, on a positive note, counters the Bush-bashing spin: The National Guard is answering the call.
