I see I need to clarify those barricades

I need to revisit, I think, the description of the barricades and the evacuees.

I did not say the barricades were to keep people from doing damage. The reasons for the barricades, I was told, included the evacuees' safety (there are flooded streets near some exits), and the lack of any relief or aid available there for them.

I have had so many questions about the looting around Algiers, and whether that was the result of, or enhanced by, the people who crossed the CCC. The reality is that the looters on the West Bank are from.... well.... the West Bank.

    When you wake up in the morning Polimom I pray you will be refreshed and girded with hope to face the challenges of your community. My thoughts are with you as you re-light your beacon of light/information for another day. Each day, one at a time, you will all be safe soon.

    We have friends on Belleville in Algiers - We have spoken to them each day except yesterday. Has anyone heard of changes in the area?
