As Hurricane Katrina blasts the 10,000-or-so people taking refuge in the New Orleans Superdome — which, as terrifying as this all is, you have to admit, is probably more people than have been in the Superdome at once since, well, since ever — we hope for the safety of those in the New Orleans, Mobile, Ala., and Biloxi, Miss. areas. Particularly now, that reports say the roof of the Superdome has been compromised, which, considering the building is more than 30 years old, probably shouldn't be that much of a surprise.
The Saints, because they're full of wealthy football players, were able to get out of town yesterday. One wonders if their stadium will be there when they return.
