Desperate pleas for help (Keith Olbermann)

SECAUCUS - If you have not yet seen the desperate pleas from people at the New Orleans Convention Center to NBC cameraman Tony Zumbado, they will run in full on Countdown tonight at 8 p.m. ET, and Tony is scheduled to join us.

We don't often 'pitch' you on specific items in the program but what Tony captured constitute transcendant images and comments from Americans who followed the rules and saw the system break down around them. 

We will also tonight face up to the scientific practacalities of what happens after they get the people - and the water - out of New Orleans. The national intuition suggests it'll be months before the place is inhabitable. The realities may be that it'll be years.

And we'll premiere tonight a segment called "I'm Okay" - a small public service, suggested by a viewer, for victims who have not been able to contact relatives and friends in other cities, at the end of the hour.
