  •  NO is a test case (none)
    There's a news story on one of the cable networks (MSNBC??) about a town being used for a morgue. There will be tons of pathologists and medical examiners brought in to process the dead.

    I get feelings of what happened at Chernobyl when the safeties kept getting overridden as the system began to meltdown.

    What Katrina did was to provide a test case for FEMA under Homeland Security to shake out the bugs in the militarization of America. It took Nazi Germany quite a few years to become a total fascist state. We are clearly into the second stage now.

    Just remember the words of Martin Niemoller:

    First they came for the Communists,
      and I didn't speak up,
        because I wasn't a Communist.
    Then they came for the Jews,
      and I didn't speak up,
        because I wasn't a Jew.
    Then they came for the Catholics,
      and I didn't speak up,
        because I was a Protestant.
    Then they came for me,
      and by that time there was no one
        left to speak up for me.

    Making judgements without intellectual justification is prejudice. We do not act rightly because have virture, we have virtue because we act rightly.
