  •  That Jefferson Parish President (4.00)
    Interesting guy -- what with his tale of FEMA cutting his communications lines, and his sheriff having to post a guard on them after reconnected. Plus the part of the interview that all the media replayed about his staffer's mom drowning in the NO nursing home (note how they left off the FEMA stuff just before from the replays).

    So this cracker was also responsible for putting armed vigilantes on the bridge to keep the n*'s out.

    •  Gretna = Jefferson Parish? n/t (none)
    •  city, parrish, state, or all three? (4.00)
      From the UPI story:
           Lawson said that once the storm itself had passed Monday, police from Gretna City, Jefferson Parrish and the Louisiana State Crescent City Connection Police Department closed to foot traffic the three access points to the bridge closest to the West Bank of the river.

      Gretna city police chief Lawson implies that the Jefferson Parrish Sheriff's Dept. and the Crescent City Connection Police Dept. (part of the state DOTD) joined in the decision to block evacuees from crossing the bridge.  Is he telling the truth?
