What Will Become of the Dead?
With most of New Orleans evacuated, there may be more dead bodies than living persons left behind. What will become of the dead?
Mayor C. Ray Nagin, who predicted that the death toll could reach into the thousands, said Saturday that officials were assembling refrigerated 18-wheelers that would serve as roaming morgues. Nagin said it might be impossible to find enough room to bury the bodies; they might all be cremated.
Many may never be identified. Particularly if there are no wallets or identification on them.
