****ALL RESIDENTS ON THE EAST BANK OF ORLEANS AND JEFFERSON REMAINING IN THE METRO AREA ARE BEING TOLD TO EVACUATE AS EFFORTS TO SANDBAG THE LEVEE BREAK HAVE ENDED. THE PUMPS IN THAT AREA ARE EXPECTED TO FAIL SOON AND 9 FEET OF WATER IS EXPECTED IN THE ENTIRE EAST BANK. WITHIN THE NEXT 12-15 HOURS****
Here is a line from on of my favorite bloggers, Steven Den Beste, who has not covered news for the last year. But he is a great thinker and makes a statement that has to be thought of at this time.
This nation has never had to abandon a major city to resettle its entire population somewhere else. I hope this doesn’t turn out to be the first time, but it may end up that way.
If this does not sober one up as to the depth of this tragedy, then nothing will.
