Death toll may not be "catastrophic"

Encouraging news from Reuters (yet I can't help but be suspicious of the source, especially since this news conference was held the day after the media was essentially kicked out of New Orleans):
The number of dead in New Orleans from Hurricane Katrina may not be as high as first feared, the top Homeland Security official there said on Friday.

"There's some encouragement in the initial sweeps. Some of the catastrophic deaths some people have predicted may not have occurred," Col. Terry Ebbert, director of Homeland Security for the city of New Orleans said at a news conference.

"The numbers so far are relatively minor as compared with the dire predictions of 10,000."
So who will be the first wingnut to declare that Democrats and liberal bloggers are disappointed with the death toll?

Yeah, it is suspicious that the day after it was said no media were allowed to go along with the search for bodies that FEMA makes this announcement. I don't trust 'em, don't like 'em, don't want 'em in office anymore.
