    Yes, I just got done watching it a bit ago. I cried at some parts, how heart breaking it was!
    It was like a war zone, right here in America. So tragic, I had to turn my head when they showed all the dead bodies in the streets, and the suffering, and the people begging for food and water..................

    Only 5 years ago too. :(

    I know...it was terrible...I knew it was bad, but when you see it like that...the expressions of despair...


    I had to get up more than once and walk off my frustration.

    By far, I found last night's program the best I had ever seen on Katrina. I was moved to tears as was my partner. I happened to have been a tourist trapped in the Superdome during Katrina and William's portrayal of the conditions was right on. Anyone not moved by this broadcast is seriously lacking some compassion.

    P.S. And for those who still are perpetuating some myths, about 85-90% of NOLA residents evacuated which is higher than most evacuations. Also most don't realize that the Airport, Amtrak, and Greyhound were all shut down a day before the mandatory evacuation. Some of us couldn't get out.

    Don't do NBC, thanks.

    I would rather do my dishes, and clean my bathroom.

    Why? You missed it the first time around?

    During the catastrophe itself and soon after most footage of what happened was aired.


    partisan nitwits made discussing the issue poisonous. that is what was saddest to me. shit happens. but when people cover up the shit that happens the cover up is worse than the crime itself.
