Abstract

Good morning. It seems like my BlackBerry service is working again. I don't have access to the news, so I don't know what you are seeing. Let me just tell you that this is a public health crisis. We have been pulling thousands of people out of their locations around New Orleans where they are stranded and surrounded by water. There are so many stranded that the military helicopters are actually sling-loading food and water in to these people.
