Some questions come to mind:

  • How are the dead being accounted for and respected?
  • How will relatives be able to know: when and were and if their loved one(s) died?
  • How is our government keeping track, so that history may know, how many died and when they died?
  • Will the dead receive a dignified and individual burial?
  • Why is there still no estimate of the dead?

  • And, for the living:

  • What is the state of the water In New Orleans? And in Mississippi and the Bayou?
  • How are relatives who evacuated to different locales being reunited?
  • Will opportunities be created for those who've been evacuated to participate in the rebuilding of the city?
  • What plans are being made in the shelters for the mental health and well being of the survivors...and aiding them in getting back to their lives with their health and dignity intact?

    • did you read the report, front page dkos, iirc, Armando, maybe... anyway... a report that the press is not being allowed in.

      I want to confirm or deny that... the press has to be in there or we won't know anything.

      they will like to write history themselves.

    • That raises more questions....and it points up the limits of the left right now.

      Can we trust the NYT? CNN? NPR? Our local paper to get the story right?

      It's odd how this has happened, that SO MANY of us feel compelled to lobby the press just to do their job. (ie. we don't know, if they were being kept out how we would know.)

      Fwiw, I can't find a good story with a good link that answers these questions....this news story answers some questions but raises many more.
