The funniest thing I've read to come out of a REAL flood news report - One person's lack of compassion does not equal another's comfort.
One person's lack of comprehension does not equal another's consent.

The funniest thing I've read to come out of a REAL flood news report

Excerpt:
The Wal-Mart store in uptown New Orleans, built within the last year, survived the storm but was destroyed by looters.

"They took everything _ all the electronics, the food, the bikes," said John Stonaker, a Wal-Mart security officer. "The only thing left are the country-and-western CDs."


I'd love to get a photo of the store cleared out and the country and western CD's left behind. Come to think of it, this might mean that people who like that sort of music are too honest to loot.

If people were looting in order to sell or trade the stolen merchandise for food, they might have left the county and western CDs behind in the belief that they were of no economic value...

New Orleans has houses with their roofs blown off. CD's make great solar reflective shingles, so it is hard to imagine that the music recorded on them would be enough to... Oh ok right, obody in their right mind would want to be identified as a fan of country music by passing aircraft.
