ABC News and the Mud Huts of New Orleans

Wonkette posted this from ABC News catching the use of “mud hut”…


Mudhut


What Wonkette didn’t mention is that if you look close you will see that “Mud Hut” is a homelikely in or near New Orleans given the ubiquitous X marking on the window and door (added: as Ray in New Orleans notes in comments here, in addition to search and rescue X markings there is the water line marks left from where flood waters settled–look above mailboxes ) …

Nice ABC! Now if you could write about Bush’s failure to build Category 5 levees in New Orleans in regard to that whole “How to Protect Yourself” thingee
