New Orleans is a cool city; it's too bad they're going to get at least partially slammed.
It'll be bad because of its topography, but they'll survive.
I wonder if the above ground cemeteries will be OK. I don't know, but that seems kind of important to me.
I've always liked hurricanes (it's like an imposed party complete with candles if you're not being flooded or otherwise in a precarious state of life), but they were a pain in the but if you had a real life to live when they hit.
One other question: what's happening to the folks in jails?
