Would you rather have your house or your head?

In the imagination of CNN's Soledad O'Brien, hurricane survivors would rather lose their head:
CNN's "American Morning" host Soledad O'Brien said Tuesday that Hurricane Katrina evacuees housed at the Superdome were worse off than beheading victims in Baghdad.

The normally mild-mannered newswoman offered the overwrought observation while speaking at Redbook Magazine's "Movers and Shakers" awards luncheon in New York.

According to the New York Daily News, O'Brien blurted out:

"It is a sad thing to watch military veterans cry as they tell you the beheadings in Baghdad were less horrific than what they saw as 30,000 people marched from the Superdome through a shopping mall and onto buses to who knows where."

Ms. O'Brien didn't identify the veterans who told her that Katrina victims would have been better off being beheaded.
Are we sure that New York's "Movers and Shakers" club isn't an affiliate of the Stripper Hall of Fame? A comment like her's could only come from a person who hangs upside-dow 5 nights a week from a brass pole.
