New Orleans, LA & Mobile, AL

Just catching up on the Hurricane Katrina news on The Weather Channel and FOXNews. If this storm holds together as it comes ashore, the Big Easy is going to get hammered badly. For those unfamiliar with New Orleans, most of the city is actually 12 feet below sea level and relies on levees and pumps to keep dry. The storm surge alone is projected to be 20 to 30 feet high which, while going over the sea walls, might completely destroy them. They're currently talking about 100,000 people unable to evacuate. The human cost and property destruction could be horrendous. Some people are predicting hundreds dead like Camille did in 1969 (225 dead, 8,900 injured, 75 missing - presumed dead). And that's not all.

Look for gas to jump another 10-20 cents a gallon, maybe 50 cents or more if New Orleans and nearby Port Fourchon get hit. According to this article at HogOnIce, 75% of the drilling in the Gulf of Mexico (600+ platforms) is within 40 miles of Port Fourchon, an island supplied by a single two lane bridge. Port Fourchon offloads 18% of domestic oil production and 13% of foreign imports, meaning ANY interruption of service is going to be felt immediately at the pump. Along with the 7 refineries shut down in the Gulf until Katrina disappears, $4 a gallon looks likely very shortly.

Everyone better go buy a Honda and ditch the SUVs for a bit.

UPDATE: Make sure your pop-up blocker is active before visiting "The Drudge Report." He has links to alot of coverage and is reporting 65 foot waves in the open waters of the Gulf.

Forget the Honda, I'm getting a moped. My heart goes out to those poor souls. Good luck to them.

It's been 36 years since Hurricane Camille smacked them in 1969... oddly enough that took place in a "Year of the Rooster" as well...


Bad joke- regardless those N.O. folks are probably going to need some major help cleaning up this mess. Sadly thousands of LA's National Guard are away from home serving in Iraq! They better get the neighboring states Guard personnel mobilized pronto. If it gets real bad maybe Chicago Po-Po can lend a hand like we did so well after 9/11.

Maybe this could finally bring "Dubya" and Cindy Sheehan's Campers together at last- "W" could actually r-e-a-l-l-y finish his National Guard duty at long last by filling up a few sandbags and manning the bullhorn again; and Cindy's Treehuggers could hold on to the local flora and fauna while "kumbaya'ing" for all they're worth to the heavens to take a peg or two outta this apparently "perfect" storm.

Scary stuff- almost makes me feel thankful for "problems" like Deep Tunnel, storm drain blockers and tose Blizzards of `67, `79 & `98 etc...

Now did they pack 30,000 poor blacks into the superdome in the hopes the hurricane will demolish the stadium and the people in it?

Could be a new way to help people off welfare.

And when the stadium does give way to the hurricane.... How many lawyers will rush to New Orleans from around the country for the MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR lawsuits?

I think they plan to roll the roof open on the superdome as the worse part of the hurricaine hits!

A good Urban Cleansing!

Let's see if Katrina hits one of those oil rigs how long before Shell and BP raise prices. Maybe, 10 minutes.

Another thing, how come this storm comes with a Russian-sounding name? Another GOP plot I bet ya.

Wow! A liberal gets a few complimentary letters and everyone gets uptight!

To 9:52 and 9:56 posts:

I do not seek the affection of sweetbabyray, or anyone else for that matter, on this board. I am just here to raise the conscience of those who back this elitist president who could care less about the working man.

Now, go back and gleefully read those subtle racist posts and have a chuckle or two. Read again the rantings of the late Dr. Pierce, the proud Aryan warrrior whose poster who have posted above your computer.

Yeah, Neil, since you are the superman of 022.... and you know EVERYTHING... I am sure you would love to tell us how great you are too. Too bad you have to put everyone else down just to make yourself look good.

one of the robbery crews hitting western in 022 has been caught. there from 007 why would they come all the way out here to rob people.
P.S Area 2 dicks did a great job. getting a good victim to walk out by being incompetent.

Al Sharpton's driver just pulled a stunt like in the Meeks case. It happened in Texas so you don't have to worry about the officer. Things are different in the rest of the country.

In regards to that robbery at 103rd and Western....

It now appears that the 3 male blacks who got away asked a mark 22nd dist car for a ride home because no busses were running on 111th street.

The mark car dropped them off at 87 and the Ryan El stop.

Were getting closer to catching these guys.... I just have a feeling we are close.....

How on earth do you feel that we are close to catching these guys if our bad guys hitch a ride out of town by the same police who are looking for them??

Hey, don't knock Neil. According to him, he's one of the best detectives at the Area. He even does police work off-duty. Without Neil, I'd be a lonely PPo.

At least Neil is out there, even on his days off. Don't you think it is sad that he (and other non-22 units)have to take such actions?

I think it is sad that anyone listens to Neil - as he is full of it. I also think it is sad that there are only negative comments made about any of these issues, rather than anything constructive. Also, hey, put your money where your mouth is - if you think you could make it better, bid into 022 and see ....

The point was N. was out there because other guys are not doing their job. It's not asking for much to just stay on patrol, or when a hot call comes in, respond to it.

The female dick who handled the case was picked by the spineless district commander, a dick with eleven months on the dicks.

The guys who should have handled the case and brought seven charges versus three were dumped because they are not female and do not run an tell tales on the troops to the 022nd Commander.

His rule is always go to him do not share info with the tac teams or troops.

I'm glad I am a short timer.

Dont knock NM at least he will do the right thing. That bitch blew of two victims with her arrogance and incompetence.

But you say, I think it is sad that anyone listens to Neil - as he is full of it.

Are you fucking ignorant.

You also said put your money where your mouth is - if you think you could make it better, bid into 022 and see.

I guess that's why an Area 2 Det, left the D unit to go work in his neighborhood (and Maas), because you pussy fucks and the Midnite Tampon Squad can't get the job done. It is sad that other units are out patroling 022, cause the desk needs soda from Whitehen. Yes I was there when a 022 PO called in from there to get their order (and by the way had a radio), I left when I heard on his radio that a squad needed assistance at 101st & Western in my personel car. Where did sackless go the other way to drop off his soda order. So fuck off you pussy no good for nothing dickface.

I knew this was coming before it was reported:

New Orleans police related that a M/B looter was robbed of the property that he had worked so so so hard to loot.

The subjected demanded a police report.

New Orleans police complied. And wrote up an Arrest Report for him.
