He failed to act, and with clear knowledge that the school busses were right there and would have easily moved thousands in round trips out of the danger zone over the weekend..Thanks for the kind words, but I'm not sure I understand this bit.Moved them to where, exactly?There were hurricane force winds as far inland as Baton Rouge - which means that you have to move people not just out of the City, but into a building that can shelter against hurricane force winds. You can't put people on buses without having a destination to send the buses to.Which is not to excuse the fact that there wasn't such a plan in place. But you can't just decide with 24-48 hours notice that you're going to put folks on buses and ship them out of town unless you've got somewhere pre-arranged to send them.So the fact that there existed buses within the City limits is irrelevant to that discussion. I'm not sure why the school buses are brought up so much, since there doesn't seem to have ever been any contention that the City lacked adequate supplies of buses prior to landfall that they would need to commandeer buses from another jurisdiction. Indeed, there were undoubtedly hundreds of ordinary municipal buses that weren't going out of town, either. Albaby
