Shameless self-promotion of my writing skills or lack there of.

Things that make you go hmm....

I received this email from a family member and it disturbed me deeply. I am pretty sure it is a bogus account, but I can't understand why someone would make something like this up. I thought I would post it and see what you thought about it. Let me know what you think. Is it real, fake or what? If it's fake, I would like to hear your take on why someone would write it. If it's real, why haven't we seen any hard news stories about it?

My friend Gail's son is an Emergency Room physician
in Tulsa. He's in New
Orleans with other doctors right now, trying to help
with the relief. This is an
email he sent his folks today. Thought you'd find
this interesting...
Here is latest from my son who's in New Orleans righ
now. I have left his
mail unedited and he's starting to share some of the
uglier stuff although (and
some reporters we've been seeing on TV are
confirming this), I think the worst
cannot be even talked about yet --- the absolute
degenerate state to which
the totally "separated" human nature sinks. Within
the past day I've heard more
than one rescue worker or reporter say something
like --- "there was who I
was before this and who I will be from this point
on." Gail

Hi Folks,

Just finishing another long night, and heading to
bed. Email has been hit or
miss for a while with Cox, so yes this is a better
way to chat. Not sure how
much of this you want to pass along... so feel free
to edit. And I'm far from
being any kind of hero... The real heroes are these
crazy CG Divers hanging
from a cord, pulling people from their rooftops
while some idiot neighbor in his
crack house is shooting at them!

Glad to hear that you've passed the word along about
some of the goings on
here in Louisiana... obviously the major networks
won't tell you what should be
told, and Fox is doing a good job about getting the
real word out, but there's
so much more to the story that they just can't
report about... its not in the
publics best interest to hear about the incredible
number of murders that
have been going on, or how the green berets are here
on the roof tops at night
with their night vision goggles. They've been taking
out these looters and
rapists one by one at night when they don' t think
they're being seen. The first
couple of nights here they were capping about 20 or
so a night, now its down to
half a dozen a night... they've been cleaning out
the city very efficiently.
The weird part is you never know its coming... just
a short bright flash from a
rooftop corner somew! here downtown and a few
seconds later, a little muffled
whoomp from the muzzle blast....sad to say it's
gratifying, but with the
stuff that's been going on, it's hard not to feel
these punks deserve it.

The rest of the city is pretty much cleared out now,
except for the corpses
floating in the water. The airport has been our main
staging area for the sick
and injured ones. (Can you walk? Great... go to gate
5 please... and your sir,
you need a wheelchair? Ok, get on this luggage cart
and we'll take you to
gate 7! Just crazy!) There are so many of these
people that probably have
typhoid, or another bacterial infection that will
end up dying that we'll probably
never know the true final death count. The open
wounds from they have on their
legs and feet from the water burning them, are
disgusting. We've even seen a
number of cases of tuberculosis too. Then there's
the people that went to a
NOLA hospital that were so obese that when the water
started rising the staff
couldn't get them up the stair wells to the dry
floors and were forced to leave
them downstai! rs to slowly drown. Nurses were
starting IV's on each other just
to stay hydrated when the water ran out. The bodies
in the streets were being
tied up to fences and lightposts by the Guard so
they wouldn't float away and
could be retrieved later. Have you noticed how the
news doesn't show 'Live'
aerial shots any more? Too many bodies floating...
The only thing thicker than
looked around yesterday and
thought we heard a low flying aircraft and wondered
what in the hell these guys
were doing flying so low only to realize it was a
swarm of flies! We're losing
our minds! I'm sure a lot of us will need therapy
for years to come! There's
so many other things we've seen that I'm not even
sure how to talk about them
yet. I'd almost rather have gone to fight in Iraq
than to see what's happened
here. If they don't tear down the Superdome and
start all over with something
new, I'll never be able to walk into that place
again. It might just be what
the 'Aints need to start winning, anyway! We heard
about some guy who had been
rescued from a hospital and when he asked where they
were taking him and he
heard "another hospital", he jumped out of the boat
because he wanted to go to
the dome since he couldn't sell his crack in the
hospitals. Go figure....

So that's my news for now... I'll try to catch you
up on other things in a
few days. I'll just leave you with one more story
that came out of Baton Rouge.

Yesterday the Rev. Jesse Jackson showed up in Baton
Rouge, I wished he would
have showed up in Sheriff Harry Lee's office as we
would have NEVER heard from
him again. He said, "Bush has NOT appointed a Single
Black to head up this
Katrina Relief, the Black Caucus and Black Leaders
all over America are upset
with him putting the Black Folks on the side and it
is OUR people who are
sitting on their roof tops waiting for Rescue, OUR
people who are standing in line
at the Superdome waiting on Food, Water and a Ride
to a safe place, OUR people
who have been locked down in Poverty..." and so on.

George Sell the Anchorman for TV 9 news responded to
Jesse, "Rev. Jackson,
the Mayors of New Orleans and Baton Rouge are Black,
the Police Chief's of New
Orleans and Baton Rouge are Black, the Head of the
LA State Police is Black,
the Head of the Army conducting the Army's operation
on the Ground in New
Orleans is Black, the Congressman from New Orleans
is Black and for the last 40
years, the leaders of LA have been members of the
Democratic Party, YOUR Party,
don't blame us like you are doing, look in the
Mirror, you pull the Race Card
any time you don't get your way, we are in a
Terrible Crisis and right now we
need to come together and here you come to Louisiana
and holler Racism, just
like you do, it is NEVER EVER your fault, ALWAYS
someone else, but here you are
sitting High and Dry, why don't you go out in to the
waters where they are
shooting at the Rescue personnel and help in the
Rescue???'"

Hats off to George Sell for putting him in his
place, Harry Lee would have
put Jesse in his place and then some! This is a time
to come together and work
together, not the time to pull the race card!

Love, Brian

We have heard alot of stories about what is happening there . One of the guys that we go to church with spent two weeks in New Orleans and he told us he didn't think he would ever be the same as he was before he went down there. This was a great post Goody because alot of people don't realize what is going on down there , they don't realize that all the food , clothes etc.. is not being distributed as we were told it would be. It is a very pitiful situation and I pray for those in that situation . :)

As do I Breazy, it is heart breaking to think of all the destruction that happened down there and I'm not just referring to the loss of property.

It really is a sad thing . I have always wanted to go see New Orleans and I never took the time . I hope they can get things under control soon because those people have suffered enough and now the volunteers and workers are suffering because of the looters and rapists and just seeing that kind of destruction is enough to blow anyones mind but add in seeing bodies floating and I can't imagine the stinch. They are all in my thoughts and prayers ! :)

don't know what to say. i think we are definitely not getting the whole story. but are there really snipers on rooftops? that seems a bit much to think of. truth is probably somewhere between this "email" and what we are being fed in the media.
