Couldn't get the people out of NOLA????

What, they didn't have the keys to these?

I say this in response to the Mayor of NO going nuts on radio last night...

WWL: What do you need right now to get control of this situation?

NAGIN: I need reinforcements, I need troops, man. I need 500 buses, man. We ain't talking about -- you know, one of the briefings we had, they were talking about getting public school bus drivers to come down here and bus people out here.

I'm like, "You got to be kidding me. This is a national disaster. Get every doggone Greyhound bus line in the country and get their asses moving to New Orleans."

I guess he thinks the evacuees would rather be stuck in the SuperDome and other places without food and water rather than get out of the city on school buses without air-conditioning.
