Top Cutlines/TGIF — 9/30/05

With warnings to looters still on his business, Bob Rue folds a wet oriental rug outside his shop in New Orleans Thursday. Rue said he had already received about 30 flood-damaged rugs from customers wanting him to salvage them. You write the cutline.

Top Cutlines:

1. Bob Rue displays the actual rug that was pulled out from under the people of New Orleans by FEMA — Family Phil.

2. “We needs it. Must have the precious Rug. They stole it from us. Sneaky little looters, wicked, tricksy, false. No, not master … Master’s my friend. You don’t have any friends. Nobody likes you. Not listening. I’m not listening. You’re a liar. And a thief. Murderer. Go away… . I hate you… . Leave now and never come back” — Bre.

3. “Let’s cut a rug, baby!” — Stebbijo.

HM: Whatever and almost everyone else. Great job.
