Back to the 19th century
Hey, New Orleans didn't go in the drink.
Move along, nothing to see here. Right?
Well, let me put it this way. The above map is of Baton Rouge -- Louisiana's capital city. It's a community of some 240,000 souls, more or less.
All the orange areas are estimated to be without electricity for 14 to 21 days, thanks to Hurricane Gustav. Large areas of the state are in just as bad shape.
Move along, nothing to see here. Especially when it's pitch dark.
