Katrina death toll

I've been doing this search of Google News every day now since September 1st.

We know so little about who died and where and when, or who might still be alive.

If I told you that even as the President gave his speech last Thursday night there were still people living and dying in New Orleans, you would be hard pressed to believe me. Click on the link. That's the truth. And it's a symbol of our government's ineptitude, its callousness, of the real meaning of Homeland Security, and what the "rescue effort" meant.

Here, in America, three weeks after Katrina hit land, folks are still dying in homes, are still being rescued. And none of us really knows how many we've lost. Think about that.
