Time For Action

Mayor Landrieu and Governor Jindal are set to speak within the next 90 minutes or so. I hope what they have to say involves words like evacuations, buses and contraflow, based on an orderly plan starting immediatelya. It’s still very, frustratingly unclear where Isaac will go and how strong it will get — much more unclear than Katrina was — but New Orleans is very much one of the places in danger, and certainty will now come too late. New Orleans takes time to evacuate. Prudent precaution demands that they act NOW. Better safe than sorry.

Time to Get The Hell Out, folks.

I’ll post more once my girls are in bed for naptime (likely after the governor’s and mayor’s pressers).
