First Floods, Now Fire

Warehouses along the river are now on fire--and there's no water pressure, so standard fire trucks really can't do anything.

Otherwise--mentioned Shawn's update yesterday very generally--to be specific, he linked to this site, which has extremely high resolution photographs of the affected areas. Caveat: the photos aren't all oriented exactly right, and they're probably of most value to folks with a good knowledge of NOLA geography; however, using them in conjuction with Google Maps in a different browser window can help.

Bill Clinton reacts to Dennis "The Human Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Float" Hastert's lunacy: Clinton was discussing New Orleans's dilemma when someone described the speaker's comments to him. Had they been in the same place when the remarks were made, Clinton said, "I'm afraid I would have assaulted him."

Back in a bit.
