Please Pray for Louisiana!
Eleven years removed from Katrina, and our state faces great peril once again. A surprise tropical system has caused extreme flooding in the south central portion of our state, including in Baton Rouge, Denham Springs, Walker, and Hammond, among others, as rivers reach historical levels. Tens of thousands have been forced from their homes due to rising waters, many rescued by boat and helicopter. For some reason, the national news media is not reporting this at all. I checked CNN a couple hours ago, and despite several fascinating reports about the amount of Donald Trump's nose hairs, and what Hilary had for breakfast, Louisiana was no where to be found. Please know that we are once again in great danger and need. Nicsperiment HQ is dry thanks to higher ground, but many great friends are without homes. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
UPDATE: CNN has finally noted our disaster.
