I can confirm the legitamacy of the firefighters from Illinois not being allowed in, I just saw it on CNN this morning, so take my word for it until
someone finds a link.
I have to say it's really pretty pathetic that so many firefighters from my state go down there, but aren't allowed in because of all the red tape.
That drives me crazy, those guys came down to help, and it's not like they wouldn't be useful in helping all the people out down in New Orleans.
But I have to say, thanks to all the firefighters who went down to help. I remember a lot of firefighters did the same thing right after the 9/11
terrorist attacks, and it's definatly an honorable effort.
