The owners of a nursing home where 34 people were found dead after Hurricane Katrina have been arrested and charged with 34 counts of negligent homicide for not evacuating those patients, the Louisiana attorney general's office said on Tuesday.P.S.

A House of Cards Usually Tumbles from the Bottom Up
This is the first report I have heard of the legal system engaging in a fixing some of the Katrina situation. No doubt, the W, Rove and Co. house of cards will tumble by it's own failures, unraveling under a tumult of legal challenges, wrongful death suits, and the like. While a house of cards usually tumbles when a small, seemingly insignificant piece falls, an avalanche starts with the smallest of vibrations. Let's hope the whole country does not founder as the legal dominos fall.
