Katrina

I'm doing a little bit of work while watching CNN's coverage of Katrina. Plenty of people have very eloquently described the magnitude of the disaster-- I can't begin to compete with them.

They keep showing people being evacuated from New Orleans, often from the attic or roof of their homes. I don't get it. The city was under an evacuation order. Why didn't they get the hell out of dodge? I have plenty of sympathy for people who have lost everything, but far less for the ones who defied common sense and stuck around.
