Tens of thousands of people, maybe 100,000 or more, have no place to go. They've been hungry, left in a stadium with no running water, toilets that make the filthiest portapotty look sparkling clean, and very little food, water or medical treatment.

They've lost everything.

Probably over a thousand are dead, and more are dying. Armed bands of thugs are roaming the streets, looking for more rape and mayhem to commit, and shooting at relief workers, buses and helicopters trying to HELP.

And yet, by reading this board, you'd think the #1 priority for many people on this board is to make politicians and political parties look bad. Worse, they're opportunistically using human misery as an excuse to engage in their favorite sport, full contact politics.

Apparently, the "worst in people" isn't only coming out on the chaotic streets of New Orleans.
