New Orleans Update

Per Democracy Now!:

As the devastation left in the wake of hurricane Katrina continues to unfold, we go to New Orleans to speak with law professor Bill Quigley of Loyola University. Quigley, who is volunteering at Memorial Hospital, said, "The people who are in New Orleans are - in all honesty - dying and there could be a lot more casualties unless there's a lot of help, real fast."
Quigley says estimates are 100,000 people are still in New Orleans, with no way to leave. They are in hospitals, or nurses, doctors, etc., or simply too poor to afford transport earlier.
