The good news

From No Man's Land, (via Gilliard):
"Not a single person was marched into a gas chamber and killed," Miller told the survivors.
That's U.S. Representative Jeff Miller, of Florida.

Angry evacuees described being trapped in temporary shelters where one New Orleans resident said she was "one sunrise from being consumed by maggots and flies." Another woman said military troops focused machine gun laser targets on her granddaughter's forehead. Others said their families were called racial epithets by police.

"I don't want to be offensive when you've gone though such incredible challenges," said Rep. Christopher Shays, R-Conn. But referring to some of the victims' charges, like the gun pointed at the girl, Shays said: "I just don't frankly believe it."
There's a lot of "not believing it" going around.

Update: I linked to the wrong news article originally, sorry.
