There were articles and stories ad nauseum for weeks.

Would have been nice if they had a "back to New Orleans" program, though. The crime from a democrat run city into ours has been horrible.

I don't think this season is going to be as bad as expected and that is really a shame. I didn't get enough of the news reporting on Katrina and the convicts it washed over here.
