Don't Underestimate Human Beings
I'm sure most of the blogosphere has heard by now that the supposed social breakdown at the Superdome was was mostly nonexistent. Maybe we shouldn't be so eager to assume the worst.
On the other hand, there might have been a deliberate effort to create apparent social chaos. I have already blogged about the possibility that the more senseless looting was intended to make the United States look bad. Maybe we should check to see if it was the same few looters carrying the same TV sets past reporter's cameras. Did the accounts of bodies come from the same few people?
