I'm so glad Haley Barbour is happy with how things are going in his state. He obviously has set the bar really high for acceptable living conditions for his citizens.

From the AP:

And consider Bay High School in Bay St. Louis, Miss. It was an unofficial shelter turned cesspool, the sight of which Gary Turner, Trudy Roberts and Felix Ruiz said should be considered a crime.

The three strangers became a rescue team of sorts when they fled to the high school themselves and found people in their 70s, 80s and 90s wallowing in their own waste on the auditorium floors. They had been brought to the school and aban doned, most unable to move without help.

"Rats wouldn't even go in there," said Turner, of Bay St. Louis.
