Katrina: Shooting at the Choppers

There's frightened, there's desperate... then there is plain arsed dumb and stupid. In New Orleans, shots have been fired at the rescue helicopters. Yes, they're shooting at the rescue helicopters.

The rescue helicopters that are trying to rescue people so they don't die of cholera - I suppose that the shooter might have thought that those folks in the helicopter were trying to take back the wide screen TV - it may seem glib, but that is the only reason I can think of.

Now those choppers aren't going to be in the air for a little while....
