    Thank you for posting this map, and explanation.
    Whatever level of rage i was feeling about this
    'episode' just went up a notch, but at least i understand the logistics of what was going on.

      When I first heard about the convention center people being kept from walking across the bridge, I assumed that authorities had had sealed off the ramps near the center to prevent people from getting onto the freeway. The bridge was the only major (and possibly only) route into central New Orleans, because surface-level portions of I10 were under water. I assumed they were doing it in part to keep the route to the Superdome open and that incompetence was the reason they weren't getting food and water to the people below the bridge.

      But the whole "mass of people walking across a bridge to be met with guns and dogs" truth of the matter just seems so Selma. I'm wondering how long it's going to take for that parallel to make it to the mass media.

      Those who do not learn from history are stupid. --darrelplant
