Washington Post: Many Evacuated, but Thousands Still Waiting

Waiting for the Washington Post to correct their correction:

"A Sept. 4 article on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina incorrectly said that Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco (D) had not declared a state of emergency. She declared an emergency on Aug. 26."

With the truth.
