Heck, I can't count that high

When I first saw this story, I thought I was reading Dreadnaught and that it was another Jonathan Lee Riches stunt. However, it turns out I was reading True Discernment, and Jonathan Lee Riches is NOT involved.

Hurricane Katrina’s victims have put a price tag on their suffering and it is staggering — including one plaintiff seeking the unlikely sum of $3 quadrillion....

Little is known about the person who claimed $3 quadrillion. It was filed in Baker, 93 miles northwest of New Orleans. Baker is far from the epicenter of Katrina’s destruction, but the city has a trailer park where hundreds of evacuees have lived since the storm.

Since Riches elsewhere, he couldn't have been the one who filed the suit.

And, for the record, Dreadnaught has covered this story also. But Red Stick Rant summed it up best:

Victimhood; it's the new oil.

But that's a LOT of oil.
