NOLA needs some voodoo now.

When they drain the NOLA bowl, I'm curious about what we'll see. Dead fish? Dead bodies? When I went to NOLA last year, I remember seeing miles of crypts and creeps. I wonder how those things hold up to being under water? If any of the stones came loose, would those pancaked bodies in there come floating out? I noticed that the French Quarter is mostly dry, by comparison, except for a corner near downtown. It's been there 400 years. I wonder if it has survived similar storms and floods before? These before and after clickable satellite maps are interesting.

  1. I wouldn't worry about the pre-embalmed, pre-buried bodies as much as the non-embalmed, decomposing bodies.  They're gonna be pulling skin-covered bags of meat from the water for weeks.  I saw a news story where they showed a body that had puffed up so much that their intestines exploded from their stomachs.  That's some toxic nastiness.
