Amphibious vehicles are entering N.O. with supplies...finally. Those in the convention center will finally get food, water, and perhaps a ride out.
I fear that the N.O. experience will discourage people from going to shelters in the future. I'm not sure I would go if faced with the choice.
Other sources (blogs and media outlets alike) are discussing the socioeconomic aspects of this crisis. The majority of those stranded are black and/or poor. Will this crisis force us to sit down and have a real discussion about poverty in America?
