The sign comes down

The Baptist church sign that blames New Orleans for bringing down God's wrath was removed, shortly after the the Boston Herald investigated. Their story ran today. (The Herald is Boston's right-leaning tabloid)

It was replaced with a new sign, "All that we have is a gracious gift from God", which I suppose is meant to reassure the insiders that their suffering reflects their sin, while our blessings reflect God's love for us.

Meanwhile, FEMA rules kept this bunch of National Guard soldiers sitting in a Hyatt instead of saving people. Once they got out of the Hyatt, they were told not to go inside any houses. Fortunately, Lt. Frederick Fell broke the rules to make sure that someone who seemed dead really was. He wasn't.
