There was a heartening piece on 60 Minutes last night regarding the New Orleans police department and their experience after Katrina. Although there was a bit about the nearly 1/3 of the department which seems to be AWOL (let's wait to hear the whole story), much of it was about how people treat other people in a crisis where near lawlessness and anarchy occurs. The home and meal sharing example was priceless. Kudos to the "real" 60 Minutes (not the dumbed down Wednesday version) for airing this. It is important to see the local response for a change in addition to knowing that "Brownie" was doing a "heck of a job!".
