Thank you, Beth, for this and the last post. Truly and sadly a time of horror for the people of New Orleans - it is unbelievable, like a war zone. With the might of US government and military, it amazes me that they haven't been able to take control of the situation. A group of 42 members of Vancouver's Urban Search and Rescue team has been held back in providing help because of the anarchy, as just one example I'm sure.

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
