Opportunity Knocks

Katrina hasn't been bad for everyone:

The desperate efforts to impose some sense of order amid the chaos were further hampered by outbreaks of looting, particularly in New Orleans where one Wal-Mart store was ransacked with its whole collection of weapons taken.

"There are gangs of armed men in the city moving around the city," said Terry Ebbert, the city's homeland security chief.

@ Creek Running North, Chris says: "I don't condone theft, whether it's a 25-inch television from an abandoned store or a pension fund. But I'm not going to waste a tear for property being taken by people who are, in effect, free-lance salvage workers." (This is out of context to this post -- this is not a reference to those stealing guns at Wal-Mart.)

@ Bang It Out, wwilson says: "I am not saying that the single mother taking diapers and food for her children is necessarily wrong, I am pointing the finger at the ones who are taking what is not rightfully theirs and un-needed."
