    This is a fluid situation in breaking news. From www.cnn.com:

    AP: Army Corps of Engineers says its contractors were not killed by police, but gunmen who fired at them were killed. More soon.

    I guess the thugs are still in town. When they round up the rest of them, they ought to put them in the Superdome.

    I heard on the news that when they are seaching those being flown to other areas that they are finding alcohol, drugs, and weapons on some of them. Praise the Lord they are not getting out of the area with guns. The only problem is that with their mentality they will somehow acquire them wherever they land, either by legal or unlegal means.

    I think some of us need to turn off the tv and the computer and just pray. I sense a downward spiral coming for some of us...may God be at your side.

    Some of the first responders are so upset and distraught at what they have been through that a few have committed suicide. It DOES just keep getting worse. A Coast Guard helo went down, but praise the Lord the crew walked away from it.

    We're thousands of miles from the site, but we have victims here and my Red Cross Coordinator said, "Don't even go to the bathroom alone."

    TexasSky,

    Are you working in the Astrodome? I guess some of the bad apples got on the bus. Just be careful. It is a shame that it would be dangerous to go alone to the bathrooms. I just hope that no one gets injured or killed!

    I heard that the governor is needing other states to start taking in the people that are still coming.
