House Speaker: Rebuilding N.O. doesn't make sense
WASHINGTON - House Speaker Dennis Hastert dropped a bombshell on flood-ravaged New Orleans on Thursday by suggesting that it isn’t sensible to rebuild the city.
"We help replace, we help relieve disaster," Hastert said. "But I think federal insurance and everything that goes along with it... we ought to take a second look at that."

Fats Domino Missing in New Orleans Floods
From Associated Press
NEW YORK -- Fats Domino was missing today, days after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, said his longtime agent, Al Embry.
Embry told The Associated Press that he hadn't been able to contact Domino since talking to him Sunday evening by phone.
The 77-year-old R&B legend, whose real name is Antoine Domino, told Embry that he planned to stay at his New Orleans house with his wife, Rosemary, and their daughter.
LONDON, (AFP) - British tourists have left the residents of one charming Austrian village effing and blinding by constantly stealing the signs for their oddly-named village.

U.S. Sells the Most Weapons to Others
WASHINGTON - The United States is the largest supplier of weapons to developing nations, delivering more than $9.6 billion in arms to Near East and Asian countries last year.
The U.S. sales to the developing countries helped boost worldwide weapons sales to the highest level since 2000, a congressional study says.
i don't know if this is 'slim thug' or 'pall wall,' but i just can't stand these guys. i've hated people in the past, but nothing compares to this crew responsible for 'Still Trippin'. They make the Yin-Yang twins look like literate, upstanding citizens.
I was wondering how long it would take for the Christian Right to blame gay people and Bourbon Street boob-baring for Hurricane Katrina:
An organization of Christian fundamentalists claims the destruction brought on by Hurricane Katrina is God's judgment against New Orleans for holding festivals like the annual gay Southern Decadence party.
"Although the loss of lives is deeply saddening, this act of God destroyed a wicked city," said Repent America director Michael Marcavage on the organization's Web site. "From 'Girls Gone Wild' to 'Southern Decadence,' New Orleans was a city that had its doors wide open to the public celebration of sin. May it never be the same."
An old man in a chaise lounge lay dead in a grassy median as hungry babies wailed around him. Around the corner, an elderly woman lay dead in her wheelchair, covered up by a blanket, and another body lay beside her wrapped in a sheet.
"I don't treat my dog like that," 47-year-old Daniel Edwards said as he pointed at the woman in the wheelchair. "I buried my dog." He added: "You can do everything for other countries but you can't do nothing for your own people. You can go overseas with the military but you can't get them down here."
Then in a leftover script from series one, "Think Fast, Father Ted" has them attempt to rig a raffle at which some Kraftwerk-inspired priests and the record "Ghost Town" are the only entertainment.
