Generally speaking, I’m far more sympathetic toward animals than people; and even though I have huge sympathy for the people in Louisiana and Mississippi… well, the pictures of the animals who were victims of the destruction of the aquarium there really hit me.
The scope of the devastation — the flooding — in New Orleans is starting to become apparent to me, and it’s shocking… it seems like the worst case scenario, the flooding of this city is happening just as predicted for years and years. I have read that some people are being told that they can’t return to the city for a month, maybe longer. Now there is a report of a prison riot with hostages. There are looters on the streets — or rather, the waters. Another thing to be ashamed of.
