Momma told me not to come... 

From Counterpunch comes a story authored by Larry Bradshaw and Lorrie Beth Slonsky, who were in New Orelans attending an EMS conference at the time of Hurricane Katrina's arrival. Trapped in town for days, they at one point organized and made for the New Orleans Bridge, having been assured by local police that buses awaited them on the other side...

As we approached the bridge, armed sheriffs formed a line across the foot of the bridge. Before we were close enough to speak, they began firing their weapons over our heads. This sent the crowd fleeing in various directions.

Let the games begin.
