Watchin' you. Writing it all down.


There are reports of 18 inches of water against the levee in the Quarter. That's not good but it certainly isn't as bad as it could be.

The east part of New Orleans seems to be catching the brunt of the flooding.

"I could have stayed at home and watched my roof blow off," said one of the refugees, Harald Johnson, 43. "Instead, I came down here and watched the Superdome roof blow off. It's no big deal; getting wet is not like dying."

I wonder if that is 'Flip Off Guy'..???

Flip Off Guy normally paints himself with silver spray paint, stands on a wire milk crate, and poses like a statue... except he is giving everyone the finger...

So the looting has started... (this is right out side the quarter)

We're outside of a Winn-Dixie grocery store on St. Louis Street here, and they're literally walking out with the store. Shopping carts filled to overflowing, they even have some of their kids going in with them to get stuff out of the store, just one after the other, there must be 40 or 50 people inside, coming out of the Winn-Dixie parking lot here right now.

They'd better be careful because NO cops tend to shoot first and ask questions later... I know they have a "You start to loot, we start to shoot" policy.

Why even bother with the boat? That little outboard sure isn't going to be enough to fight their way upwind....

Where do you think they are gonna put the people if they are injured?

"New Orleans Is Sinking"

Bourbon blues on the street loose and complete
Under skies all smoky blue-green
I can Forksake the dixie dead shake
So we dance the sidewalk clean
My memory is muddy what's this river I'm in
New Orleans is sinking and I don't want to swim

Colonel Tom What's wrong? What's Going On
You can't tie yourself up for a deal
He said" Hey North you're south shut you big mouth
You gotta do what you feel is real."
Ain't got no picture postcards ain't go no souvenirs
My baby she don't know me when I'm thinking about thoes years

Pale as a light bulb hanging on a wire
Sucking up to someone just stoke the fire
Picking out the highlights of the scenery
Saw a little cloud looked a little like me

I had My hand in the river
My feet back up on the banks
Looked up to the lord above and said hey man thanks
Some time I fell so good I gotta scream
She says Gordie baby I know exactly what you mean
She said, she said I swear to god she said

My memory is muddy what's this river I'm in
New Orleans is sinking and I don't want to swim

Like anyone here know who gordie is.....

I still think a shot of GB planting the bombs in the levee would be better.
but that's still kick ass.
