Here are the New Orleans buses

that could have evacuated the city before the hurricane hit, sitting around in nice, neat, flooded, useless rows afterwards. (Source: Yahoo News, 9/1/05, via "Our Way of Life," which has a lot of good commentary.) There are approximately 200 buses in this picture alone, and there are clearly more that are beyond the margins of the photo. If each one of the 200 could carry 60 people, that's 12,000 who could have been ferried out on each trip to, say, Baton Rouge on higher ground just 75 miles away.
