superdomed
 adj.— «There’s a new phrase in the safety industry—“Superdomed.” That’s what happened to the people in New Orleans. There were people who were damn hungry and damn thirsty stuck in the Superdome. But they weren’t dying from hunger or thirst, they were dying a little bit at a time from lack of information. They thought they were on their own Gilligan’s Island.» —“How the LAFD Keeps Us Connected: An Interview with Brian Humphrey” by Andy Sternberg LAist July 9, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
