I’ve been following an incredible blog written by The Interdictor, part of a team keeping a datacenter running in downtown New Orleans. This not your father’s CNN…
It’s been a very long day. I’m going to crash for a bit and try to get 5 hours or so of sleep. I apologize again that I cannot respond to each IM. I am trying. We’ve got that IRC channel going and I’ll try to get in there for a while later in the day.
I am going to debrief the police officer completely in the morning. He was utterly fatigued, thirsty, and wanted to find out what the hell was really going on.
Security has become a major concern now, because the NOPD is ineffective and the
lootersterrorists are roaming the streets. Word is now that they’re lighting buildings on fire, but I can’t confirm that. Anyway, we have to run guard shifts and patrol and it limits our downtime.
It is a zoo out there though, make no mistake. It’s the wild kingdom. It’s Lord of the Flies. That doesn’t mean there’s murder on every street corner. But what it does mean is that the rule of law has collapsed, that there is no order, and that property rights cannot and are not being enforced. Anyone who is on the streets is in immediate danger of being robbed and killed. It’s that bad.
I will be back on around 0700 or so I think.
Team SOTI signing off. Will leave the cam on.
I found this after being disgusted with CNN’s mamby-pamby reporting.
