Treat 'Em Like Garbage 

Okay, now that I have your attention...

Somebody on one of the bobblehead shows (Chris Matthews I think) just said that they were "setting up" a "plan" to search for the remaining survivors in town. Don't remember details but it involved the troops available making up a grid with GPS location tags to make sure they hit every house, blah blah blah.

There isn't TIME for that, dammit! This, today, Sunday, is just about the very last chance these people have--the crippled, the elderly, the immobile, the diabetic, the ones who said to their healthier youngsters "You leave me what you can and go save yourselves. Come back for me when you can."

And it can be done now. You get the NO municipal garbage collection fleet, every employee and every vehicle. They already know where every house and apartment is because they have been doing pickups there for years.

Every one leads a task force of outsiders who don't know the town. They go block by block and search every house. This frees up the helicopters to work only in the areas flooded too deep for any sort of wheeled vehicle, even ones with as high a draft as a garbage trick, to get into.

And a stock of body bags with every vehicle too. It sure wouldn't be any further indignity to the lost to get their last ride out on a garbage truck.
