The "No Pets Allowed" Rule in New Orleans

Tense Crowds Fill Buses From Superdome to Texas

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- At the front of the line, the weary refugees waded through ankle-deep water, grabbed a bottle of water from state troopers and happily hopped on buses that would deliver them from the horrendous conditions of the Superdome.

At the back end of the line, people jammed against police barricades in the rain. Refugees passed out and had to be lifted hand-over-hand overhead to medics. Pets were not allowed on the bus, and when a police officer confiscated a little boy's dog, the child cried until he vomited. ''Snowball, Snowball,'' he cried.
I cannot even comment on this news.

Hey Sam,

I can comment on it, but my typist says that kind of language is not allowed. All I can say is that is so very very mean, inconsiderate and inhumane. I know if we animals were running things we would allow humans on the bus.
