This is so ridiculous it can't even be commented on.

Hurricane Katrina's victims have put a price tag on their suffering and it is staggering — including one plaintiff seeking the unlikely sum of $3 quadrillion.
A whopping $3,014,170,389,176,410 is the dollar figure so far sought from some of the largest claims filed against the federal government over damage from the failure of levees and flood walls following the Aug. 29, 2005, hurricane.

Little is known about the person who claimed $3 quadrillion. It was filed in Baker, 93 miles northwest of New Orleans. Baker is far from the epicenter of Katrina's destruction, but the city has a trailer park where hundreds of evacuees have lived since the storm

Didn't I read somewhere that the Federal Government had given New Orleans or the state money to repair the levies long before they broke, but they had misappropriated it?
This is too rediculous and an unfortunate sign of the times!
Not that I have a strong opinion or anything:)
Loved the videos..
Hope you'll keep us posted on the wolves!

Here from Meggie's.
As I understand it from here, America is broke, so dont like the chances of anyone getting much compensation.

It is disgusting though, that things are still not right for those folk.
