Outlooker - i'm curious. I wasn't actually in NO when this happened and yet the doctor in question was. he wasn't being told things by the media he was actually there, getting on with the situation unfolding around him. As an by stander to this event i have to rely on eye witness accounts and not what i'm told by the news/polititions etc etc As you say you think he was wrong in some case's does this mean you were in NO too during the disater? How can you be sure that someone who actually experienced the events 1st hand is incorrect? The 2 most amazing comments he made on the program that unfortunatly weren't included in the Web chat were: He was listening the the radio talking about armed gangs who had broken into his hospital and raided the Hospitel pharmacy for drugs....he was listening to this report from the Hospitel Pharmacy WITH the hospitel pharmasist!!...but the best one was when, on the several radios they had around the building they heard on the main radio station that the whole hospital had already been evacuated!! when in fact not a single person had been air lifted! +++++++ I wasnt in New Orleans for the storm either, I evacuated 12 hours prior. I have lots of friends in the area who stayed including nurses, cops, state troopers and even National Guardmen. My coworker is a member of the Louisiana Air National Guard ( 159TH out of NASJRB NOLA) he was activated on the Saturday Prior to the storm along with several other guardsmen. He was sent to Hammond Louisiana ( to refuel aircraft after the storm) other members of his unit were sent to the Superdome ( The convention center was not a "shelter" nor was it ever intended to be) Maybe that explains the lack of guardsmen at the Convention Center. I have a friend who was taken by a military truck from the an area east of New Orleans to the convention center on the Tuesday following the storm. So from eyewitness reports that would put the military in the area less than 48 hours after the storm. My friend ended up at the Astrodome after spending 4 nights at the Convention Center. He told me and I have no reason to believe he is lying , that everything we heard on Television about what happened there actually did. He had 2 small children with him and did not let go of their hands for the entire 4 days.
