    Those dead bodies dont even look real. They look like statues. Very tragic and sad for those people. I tell you what, those looters should be shot, there is no reason for that. Folks have suffered enough.

    Agree. I had to look three or four times to convince myself.

    Of all the pictures, perhaps image 37 is the most haunting.

    Well, depends on what he was looting, tbh. Remember Katrina when one person was 'looting' food from a grocery store and another couple 'found' food from a grocery store?

    If he was looting people's homes for valuables, then it's one thing. If he was rooting around for something to eat, wear, shelter, etc then it's another.

    But that's a toss up really.

    Nuees Ardentes are absolutely amazing, and scary as hell.

    Wowzers


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.
