A Little Bit of Insight on the Louisiana Emergency. [Sep. 4th, 2005|04:13 am]
[Tags|, , ]
[In the Moment |Not a Surprise.]

Though the "martial law" declared in Louisiana is not recognized as part of the state law, the state of emergency declared by governor Blanco is a Louisiana catch-all as part of the civil law from the Napoleonic Code.

After all, Louisiana differentiates with regard to how the law is interpreted.

In other words, Louisiana is to the United States like Quebec is to Canada.

All of this matters little, since in parishes or counties, when people do not receive aid and cannot use oft-taken-for-granted necessities like running water and electricity, they often become cannibalistic toward each other.

I actually envisioned the city of Detroit in flames over the great August 2003 blackout. Had it lasted as long as the chaos in New Orleans, it just might have been.

As for the idea of 'martial law,' whatever it may be called, the military takes over all aspects of civil order. Anyone out of line does not receive the normal treatment. Think Lyndie. Rights become toilet paper.

The destruction was not going to be corrected in a handful of days. The city will be lost for some time. Those caught in it are sure to perish if left there.

The city will become a ghost town.

But my divorce is acutally going to be a peaceful one. Matt and I actually talked about it like normal adults no fighting or anything.

Re: this is off the subject...

That is wonderful news.

I'm glad that's going to go through with as little difficulty as possible.

Hope seems to spring eternal.

A person on my friends list posted a picture of the desolate NO city, all washed away, the relics of bridges reaching out of the water.

It was a fake poster for "John Carpenter's Escape From New Orleans". A friend of his made it. It seriously, after looking at it, reminded me of the two "Escape" films, just complete devastation.

A friend mentioned today that it reminded him of King's The Stand.
