Evacuees

People from Louisiana are everywhere here. (It's easy to tell when you listen to them talk.) There's the Red Cross shelter at the Methodist church, and people staying with relatives, and apparently people in several formerly-vacant units in our apartment complex. And tomorrow they're moving 4000 people from the Astrodome down here to a Carnival cruise ship. Those tiny cabins are going to seem like the lap of luxury to somebody who's been living on the floor of the Astrodome for days, aren't they?

Update: Except they don't want to go, apparently. I can see that they've been uprooted multiple times already, in a lot of cases, but still, it's hard for me to imagine that anybody really wants to stay in the Astrodome rather than have some privacy. (And I'm a person who has so far refused to go on a cruise because I'm claustrophobic. Between the two extremes, though, I think I'd choose the tiny cabins, assuming that the ship is staying at the dock and you're allowed to come and go freely. That's just me, though. The evacuees have been through hell and if they want to stay at the Astrodome, they ought to be allowed to stay.)
