Nashville residents survey flooding aftermath

(CNN) – Nashville offers an agonizing picture of what happens when 13 inches of rain falls in just two days. The mayor says the damage could top a billion dollars and take months to clean up. Our Martin Savidge found that, for some, the devastation is too much to bear.

    Regarding Americans who either kill (like the doctor) or attempt to kill (the Times Square man), why doesn't anybody call them by their real names "Traitors"?

    Nashville has been under water for DAYS and DAYS and no power. Where is the President? Don't we deserve at least a fly-over? He declared us a disaster area from his office while getting ready for his Cinco de Mayo party? If this had been Detroit or Chicago, he'd have been in a boat riding around to the affected areas and hugging residents.

    Your job statement was great except you didn't mention the census jobs were only temp till July, but then again you'll need that for a news story in July.

    The only good thing about this is that all this trash can be recycled back into useful products .
