Perhaps the New Orleans death toll won’t be as bad as expected:

Estimates of the death toll from Hurricane Katrina have run as high as 10,000 but the actual body count so far is much lower and officials who feared the worst now hope the dire predictions were wrong.

The recovery of Katrina’s victims speeded up in the last two days. As of Thursday, Mississippi had recorded 201 deaths and Louisiana 118, while other affected states had much lower numbers.

Considering that 25,000 body bags were ordered, this is welcome news.



  1. according to The Washington Post, flood control projects in New Orleans have received more money per year under the Bush administration than under Clinton…

    Awesome…Laura, you WrOcK!
