This is emotional, so give me a little break.

I've written about Katrina here. I've bitched about the lack of coverage. Heck I've yelled about it. Now where I live is literally drowning. I don't mean from a "kind of you know like it is wet," I mean literally!

Time and time again here we talk 24/7 about who will be Obama's VP. What does McCain's medical records show? Did Hillary blow her nose on a napkin with a US flag on it (I made that one up).

I will with this first picture and an few more below (all Cedar Rapids, Iowa), hopefully let you know some bad stuff is ongoing and we could use some attention.

I hear people say we wouldn't let this happen again, we just did! Most likely my parents home town, their leeves will be breached tomorrow .....

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
