. "Hell on Earth." Fuck. NOLA Mayor Ray Nagin today announced martial law, for real (as opposed to the rumors discussed in I&P below).
The LA Attorney General still insists there's no such thing under LA law. The Mayor's _freaking_out_. Nagin's an ok guy, but panic isn't what you want in your leader.
There is no law in New Orleans. I hope the optimistic anarchists are right....
*Update* -- Having been told they could leave when they wished, the Superdome refugees are now being kept
against their will. Houston authorities have (no link handy, sorry) said that the Astrodome would allow free movement. We shall see.
If this isn't martial law, what is?
