    • Locals say "wherever oil has been spotted, BP and the Coast Guard have quickly deployed the necessary amount"

    That was up to them to have a plan. When I lived in Georgia, there was a detailed plan to evacuate people from the barrier islands and vulnerable coastal areas to places further inland. It was a bipartisan plan -- which fortunately never had to be used while I was there.

    Why did NOLA have a plan? Either they didn't, or race baiter Nagin completely dropped the ball.
