Did anyone see a woman named Delia on CNN this morning? She is one of people who has chosen to stay. It is hard to describe her... confident, umpteenth generation New Orleans, lives in the art district. She road her bike to the interview. When Soledad O'Brien asked her why she would stay with the toxic water around her she said that her house was high and dry with very little damage. It was the media who chose to hang out in the toxic water.
She also clarified that folks were told to get out, but were not given the means to do so. They were then given the Superdome option which turned into a horror and a nightmare.
She has working phones, a gas stove and somehow water - including showers. She wants the mayor to meet with folks to tell them why they have to leave because the alternatives are not acceptable.
Not sure whose side I'm on here. A lot of gray area, just like life.
