New Orleans Spared!
A last minute move to the east and a weakening of the storm spared New Orleans from a direct hit. Hopefully this will keep deaths among those who were left behind in the belated mandatory evcuation to a very minimum. And on the local TV coverage last night, many of those who had left at the last minute said it was only after the Mayor Nagin - at last - said that it was a mandatory evcuation that they decided to leave.
