    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 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.

    New Orleans looters, planning ahead, have already begun chartering boats large enough to haul away plasma tv's, and other booty...

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

    I'm not discounting the gravity of the disaster. Just sick of the pointless observation of the anniversary.

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