Last 300 Refugees Leave Superdome

By MARY FOSTER, Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS - The last 300 refugees in the Superdome climbed aboard buses Saturday bound for new temporary shelter, leaving behind a darkened and stinking arena strewn with trash.

The sight of the last person — an elderly man wearing a Houston Rockets cap — prompted cheers from members of the Texas National Guard who were guarding the facility.

Why in the world did it take 5 days to accomplish this?

I understand that the Astrodome is now overcrowded.
