"Won't be another New Orleans" posted by Vynce at 7:11 PM
Gretna Police Chief Arthur Lawson says he won't let people turn his city into another New Orleans by, you know, crossing the bridge [2 pop-ups] they were told was their best way out of the sunken City. Apparently he thinks if you didn't get out earlier, you should stay in for the long haul or hold out for a nice ride from the navy boys. This article also touches on some other details of what happens when you try to help yourself in a FEMA-run emergency.
The thing that gets me is that if we could get on the phone and get 10 buses, why couldn't FEMA make that call?
And they had promised the bus company less than $2k a head. Fascinating.
