Default Re: British students trapped in the Superdrome .....

I'm so sorry to read what happened to those British students, Maureen. Thank God that it was nothing worse than what was described. I wonder how many of them will never want to return to the States after such a scary and dangerous experience in this "civilized" country of ours. I hope that they will understand how a tragedy like this can influence people who might, in normal times, be decent and law-abiding citizens. But it also shows how racism can show its ugly face in times of stress, no matter by whom and to whom it is directed.
