Sunday, September 04, 2005 | News for New Orleans, Louisiana | Katrina Aftermath | News for New Orleans, Louisiana | Katrina Aftermath: "As authorities struggled to keep order, police shot eight people carrying guns on the Danziger Bridge, which spans a canal connecting Lake Pontchartrain and the Mississippi River, Deputy Police Chief W.J. Riley. Five or six were killed, Riley said, adding that he had no other details."

Yes indeed. Taking the city back from the armed gangs. The good thing is that these thugs are nowhere near armed enough to stand up to the forces coming after them. As the eight people carrying guns found out, they may be sufficient to terrorize unarmed old people and various nonviolent types of people but the real authorities can and will make short work of them. One good thing, if you can call it that, about this event is that anything a terrorist can do in any attempt at mass terror, including a nuclear attack, cannot be as bad as this has been and will continue to be. A nuclear bomb being set off in Newark or New York will cause a lot of damage but as with the 9-11 attack, the infrastructure which allows the quick response will be much less damaged than it has been from Katrina. A week from today is the anniversary of 9-11 and if there is anything planned for that day, I think it will pale in comparison to what has already happened by the force of nature. At least in that case we can take out our frustrations on Syria or Iran in response. With Katrina there is nobody to blame except ourselves. I also am hearing the reports of dysentery happening among the survivors. This disaster will not end soon.
