LAWLESS CHAOS!
(AP) The evacuation of the Superdome was suspended Thursday after shots were fired at a military helicopter, an ambulance official overseeing the operation said. No immediate injuries were reported.
"We have suspended operations until they gain control of the Superdome," said Richard Zeuschlag, head of Acadian Ambulance, which was handling the evacuation of sick and injured people from the Superdome.
He said that military would not fly out of the Superdome either because of the gunfire and that the National Guard told him that it was sending 100 military police officers to gain control.
"That's not enough," Zeuschlag. "We need a thousand."

Yesterday a few people jumped on me because I so strongly criticized the slowness of the overall government rescue response, which I rather strongly characterized as some people "sitting on their ass" when they should be jumping. I said the President should have someone calling the states adjacent to the stricken area to request city buses and school buses "right now" to drive to New Orleans and rescue people.

This morning I spotted this on the WWL blog:

5:55 A.M. - State of Louisiana Military Department: The Governor's office has requested the use of school busses from Louisiana schools to help with the evacuation of New Orleans

So many bureaucrats and politicians are blowing hot air over how wonderful and organized the rescue effort is, and what a fine job is being done, that I believe a word definition is in order:
bloviate v. to speak loudly, verbosely, and at great length, without saying much. It is a pseudo-Latin alteration of blow, in its slang sense 'to boast', also the inspiration for the early-nineteenth-century blowhard.
