It is reported that black hurricane victims in New Orleans have begun eating corpses to survive.
Frankly, I don’t believe it. Human beings can go for weeks without food. But they can only go a few days without water. I highly doubt that such atrocities have occurred in New Orleans in such a short period of time. It is much more likely that they have been compelled to drink filthy water than break one of the most powerful taboos in our culture.
So, we have two options. Either the incredibly unlikely has happened, and the residents of New Orleans have devolved into unspeakable savages in just four days. Or, this author is just making shit up for attention (or at best, merely repeating an unconfirmed rumor).
The smart money is on the latter…
