     CNN says the water's rising but they stopped sending boats out to rescue people in the flooded areas of NO. awful...

    And all i'm seeing on tv is local cops and emergency people--no army, no guard, nothing else.

        "When you stand in the dark, and hear people calling for help, and no one can get to them . . . it's different."

        Meserve re how hard it is to cover this story, compared to the usual media attempt to maintain distance.  CNN just ran her interview with Aaron Brown again.  It's harder to watch and hear each time, too.
