Here's how Brian closed Tuesday's broadcast from the Superdome. Nightly News will orginate from New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward on Wednesday.
"Finally tonight, the parts of this city not visible to the rest of the nation. From the air, New Orleans -- and this whole region for that matter -- looks like a sea of blue. The locals call it "FEMA blue," the plastic tarp material that covers the roofs of houses.
And when you fly over at night, you see the reality as well. As much as this city wants to stress the services that have been restored: there are entire areas still living in darkness. No power. No lights. For three months.
The U.S. is at war. The holidays are coming. Americans are busy. And a whole lot of people in this area want people to know: life is still a daily struggle in this part of the world."
