I think seeing 40,000 dead bodies is way over the top...Glad FEMA stepped in.

OK, I found an article with that figure - still, that seems unlikely to me.

How did you arrive at that number? Do you have a crystal ball? If so, you'd win the lottery in a nano-second.

I disagree completely. This nation needs to see those bodies to remind everyone of government taxation with no implementation, greed, waste, incompetence, citizens' stupidity, building a major city in basically a dung bowl, lack of major infrastructure maintenance (levees and sewage upgrades in NO), BS political bashing, political corruption, etc., etc.

I will say this, no names of the dead, their location, or the heads/faces need to be shown. You think it's bad now, well, wait until the pictures come out of bodies having been fed upon by packs of hungry animals (pets) that have now started roaming NO in search for food, not to mention the rats. These pets are going to be sick too and very very mean due to illness, hunger, and stress as recovery starts.

I am being a realist here about a great catastrophe (a trait Nagin and Blanco lacked 2 days ahead of time before Katrina hit) in our nation that all Americans need to hear and see, otherwise, governments will continue to tax and spend with no accountability. Inept leaders will continue to be elected and entitlements will outpace economic and physical growth and socialism will then be our way of life.
