Pics from training facility prove Benson is a liar

An excellent blog site following New Orleans' recovery - aptly titled The Third Battle of New Orleans - has posted some outstanding photos of the Saints' Metairie training facility, taken this afternoon. (Two of the photos are reproduced below.)

As you can see, the facility is in great shape, and is quite obviously vacant.

Which runs completely contrary to Benson's assertions to his staff yesterday that the facility was occupied by FEMA and the National Guard, or that the facility is unusable.

Makes you wonder: What the hell is Tom Benson thinking?
