Guess What? Louisiana Still Can't Communicate

A year later, not much has changed in Louisiana.

One minor example: Relying on "beefed-up" cell towers for communications in a major disaster, as the gov't official interviewed does, is ludicrous. Cell towers have one, maybe two T-1 lines, permitting 24-48 phone calls in an area with, typically, 5,000 cell phones per square mile.
