That (apparently) don't impress them much

Even in times of disaster, it seems the people of New Orleans have good taste in music. In a story about business owners returning to the hurricane and flood-stricken city, a Wal-Mart security owner talks about what looters did – and didn’t – pilfer.

“They took everything – all the electronics, the food, the bikes . . . People left their old clothes on the floor when they took new ones. The only thing left are the country-and-western CDs. You can still get a Shania Twain album.”

While I’d debate whether poptart Shania Twain truly is C&W, it’s good to see looters wouldn’t even steal her CDs when given the opportunity.

(Thanks to doucheblog for that one.)
