    I was born there, and still have family there.  One part of the family has headed for, of all places, Texas.  At the last minute.

    The other part is too poor to go to higher ground and has no money or transportation.

    They need at least ten or twenty pumps.

    New Orleans, soon to be the Venice of the South.  But at least Venice has taken care of some business to keep from being swallowed up by the sea.  Corruption, inertia, racism--that's what kept New Orleans from lessening the karmic retribution.

    New Orleans, gateway to the third world.  A banana republic in America's back-a-yard.
