We try to post a lot of news on the blog, but don't forget to check for comprehensive coverage from the Sun Herald. Stories that will appear in tomorrow's Sun Herald are already getting up there.

The NO mayor came out and slammed the federal reponse. It got me wondering about his response to the crisis before the storm. If he KNEW that many people in his town did not have the resources to leave before the storm why did he not make available all the school buses we see parked in the flooded school bus yard. He could have saved some people plus saved the school buses for future use. Before the mayor starts throwing rocks he better look at his glass house.
