    Evacuees at Cajundome wait for first lady, and for lunch

    Jan Risher

    As the first lady toured the Red Cross shelter at the Cajundome this morning, a line of evacuees waiting to eat their lunch trickled out the door of the Dome.

    First lady Laura Bush arrived about midday to tour the shelter and meet evacuees.
    By 12:50 p.m., the trays of food were still covered and hungry evacuees stood in line, holding empty plates. Rice, beans and jambalaya were on the menu. About that time, volunteers began rolling the carts of food into position to serve.
