World News Trivia Contest

Test your knowledge of world events. Which of the following recent events occurred in Fallujah, and which occurred in New Orleans:

1. …shots were fired at a military helicopter, making it clear that it had become too dangerous...

2. …And National Guard Lt. Col. Pete Schneider said the military suspended the ground evacuation because (of) fires set by (locals)...

3. …(hospital officials) asked authorities late Wednesday to help evacuate a fully functioning hospital…after a supply truck carrying food, water and medical supplies was held up at gunpoint…

4. …There are physical threats to safety from roving bands of armed individuals with weapons who are threatening the safety of the hospital…

5. …"We're trying to deal with looters as ruthlessly as we can get our hands on them…"

Scroll down for the answers.

Of course you guessed that all of the events occurred in New Orleans.

As you might know, 100% of the Louisiana Executive branch, including the Governor, is made up of Democrats. Sixty-four percent of the House and 63% of the Senate are Democrats. Given demographic data, the percentage of liberal Democrats residing in the City of New Orleans is much higher than that found statewide, and clearly the entire state leans left. Maybe the left should get its own house in order before it worries about what we should do in Iraq. There are no excuses for this behavior. These "citizens" are a disgrace to the entire country.

1. Richard Zeuschlag, Chief of Acadian Ambulance New Orleans
2. Lt. Col. Pete Schneider
3. Tenet HealthCare Corp.
4. THC spokesman Steven Campanini
5. Haley Barbour, Mississippi Governor
