Another Urban Legend gone

Murder! Rape! Looting and pillaging! And yet:

Cataldie also put to rest rumors that some stranded evacuees who packed the convention center and Superdome had been murdered.

None of the 10 people who died at the Superdome or the four who died at the convention center were murdered, he said.

The people who died at the two shelters, he said, "were so fragile, quite honestly, they didn't make it without medical care."

Betcha five years from now the number of people 'murdered' in the Superdome will have grown to dozens... Such is the vitality of a great meme.
