Business Boom After Katrina

Yes, my title is sick, but I feel sick. The one business that will be doing well is the mortuary business:

"DMort is telling us to expect up to 40,000 bodies," Dan Buckner said, quoting officials with the Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team, a volunteer arm of Homeland Security.
