OOPS! Original estimate of 10,000 dead in N.O. off by as much as 9,500!

It seems as if the early estimates was more pessimistic than realistic.

NPR reported Friday that 60% of those rescued when questioned about why they stayed behind was that they were not going to leave their homes.

Now who do we blame?

Ya know, that 10k figure was thrown out there by the mayor during one of his rants. He had no clue.

besides, I have a feeling that it will be more than 500.

So don't be a D'nice and revel in wierd shiot.

Actually, I think that figure was originally thrown out by the media and the mayor initially denied comment. But once it was determined that the figure was derived from computer models he basically agreed to those figures.

At least, that is the way I deciphered from the newscast that I watched.

I'd venture to say that even at that low number it's still MORE THAN NEEDED TO DIE if this situation were handled properly.

Is all the water drained suddenly, if not there is no way to know the real number one way or the other. It would be great if it was only 500 but I doubt there is any way for NPR to actually know that.

However the good news is that they think they might have the water drained in as little as a month and they are indeed finding far fewer deaths than anticipated.
