the common sense award of the week

goes to new orleans mayor ray nagin - who says that in the likely event of a future hurricane, new orleans will evacuate its citizens by bus and train:
The new emergency preparedness plan, a work in progress, will not include the opening of the Superdome as a refuge of last resort.

Instead, the city, state and federal government will participate in an effort to move an estimated 10,000 residents without transportation to state shelters outside the area by bus or Amtrak train. The train will be reserved for “special needs” residents with medical conditions and the elderly.
i wonder how many hours of meetings it took to come up with this plan? i guess it must have taken a lot of time to design the big fancy flow charts:

they have multiple colors and everything!
