The worst is yet to come

After the water is pumped out of New Orleans, warns Secretary of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff: “It will be worse than anything we have had in this country, perhaps with the exception of September 11. I believe we need to prepare the country for what's coming." Chertoff himself continues to refuse to guess at the number of deaths, but a member of Congress said it could exceed 10,000. Anxious to make people forget his initial indifference, George W. Bush decreed a 48-hour period of mourning. "If you want to help this country recover, please give money to the Red Cross," beseeched the president, while visiting the headquarters of the institution in Washington.
