Too Depressing for Words

I woke up this morning to hear to Governor of Louisiana declaring war on
her own citizens. The National Guard troops being sent in have,
apparently, just returned from Iraq and:

They have M-16s and they're locked and loaded. These
troops know how to shoot and kill, they are more than willing to do so
and I expect they will.

I have no doubt that the city is in chaos, and restoring order is
important. But is it really necessary to kill your own starving,
desperate citizens? Is it even remotely appropriate to be talking in
those terms?

I just can't take it any more. It just keeps getting worse.
