Superdome to Astrodome

NOLA reports that they are planning to bus people from the Superdome to the Astrodome:
The 23,000 New Orleans evacuees who have been holed up at the Superdome with little air conditioning, food and water, will be bused 12 hours to Houston to be housed for an indefinite period at the Houston Astrodome, Gov,. Kathleen Blanco said Wednesday.

Department of Social Services Secretary Ann Williamson said the buses should start rolling later Wednesday. About 475 vehicles have been arranged to ferry the evacuees to Houston.
After they get this lot of people out, they will drop more off at the Superdome, in its smelly squalor, to be ferried somewhere. I'm starting to think that the only way that people are actually going to get a place to live is for towns to adopt them. I can't imagine what it would be like to have been sitting in the Superdome with no functioning toilets, no way to bathe, no AC, little food or water and then be told that I am going to be taken to the Astrodome. Some of these people are going to be getting very ill soon. There are a lot of children.

SunHerald.com reports that looting has hit Gulfport. The police announced that they will arrest anyone caught on the streets after 6 PM. The top looting targets are food, water, beer and cigarettes.

Needing beer and cigarettes I can understand, but food? Who needs that? Shoot them, I say.
Sounds lovely, doesn't it. I'm trying to imagine the tourism ads....

"Gulfport - all the beer, cigarettes, food and water you could ever want - but bring money. We are armed and dangerous."
