If heading to New Orleans, wear a respirator...

This story is on the Knight Ridder wire. Finally a story that stresses that there is no idea what long term exposure to the New Orleans environment could do. Also, check out this ominous warning:

Health officials recommend that everyone in the city wear a respirator mask. As the city dries out, dust will be a problem. Breathing dust under any circumstances is unhealthy, but the dust in New Orleans may contain contaminants, they said.

WHY ARENT YOU TELLING PEOPLE WHO GO AND WORK, ABOUT THE WORKING CONDITIONS? THEY ARE SENDING PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT STATES TO WORK. AND THEY DONT KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT. I THINK YOU SHOULD LET PEOPLE KNOW WHATS GOING ON. BEFORE YOU SEND PEOPLE DOWN THERE. I HAVE SOMEONE WHO IS DOWN THERE NOW. BUT I AM GOING TO LET THAT PERSON KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON AND IT WILL BE UP TO HIM IF HE WANTS TO STAY OR NOT.
