18. It's called "divide and conquer" and it's Rove's trick
now that Rove is back in the game, look for more spin like this.

This is very simple: the game is to create a whole bunch of categories for deaths (think 9 or 10 different things people could have died of) and then only release one category to the public.

So you put deaths into categories like: drowning, disease (various categories), wind-related, lack of care, dehydration....

And then anybody who was old and who died is "not a victim of Katrina",the spin is they might have died that week anyway, so they will not be counted. ALL nursing home deaths are probably being excluded from the counts. ALL homeless people (I'm guessing NO had quite a few) will not be counted as nobody will be found to name them (some of their bodies probably washed out to sea anyway).

In the end, don't ever expect to see a total, except you might see a few hundred from Louisiana added to the hundred from Miss. and AL.
