Bad mojo in New Orleans

Things are getting really bad in New Orleans: more than 80% of the city is underwater, thousands are believed dead, and reports now say that New Orleans is to be abandoned. Armed looters are roaming the streets, and if these reports are anything to go by, a lot of them are New Orleans police gone rogue. Meanwhile, attempts to evacuate stranded refugees have been disrupted when shots were fired at rescue helicopters, presumably by post-apocalyptic warlords defending their turf.

And it emerges that money intended for raising New Orleans' flood defences was diverted to the Iraq war.
