Allegators In N.O.
There have been reports of Allegators in the streets of N.O. Some were captured a few days ago. This one has a fullgrown deer in its mouth. Gotta be a serious threat to folks walking through the streets down there.

Interviews with survivors
take some time to go to this website and read Cory Delaney's story along with many others. His story is heartbreaking and you know there's thousands more like it.

WOW
That's deep. The thing that hits me the second most (after shivering from reading the line where he first mentions his mom) has little to do with the story but realizing that printing survivor stories is just about all the white media can do. It's up to us to analyze this. They don't know where to start and no one should expect them to.

I feel you....That's kinda what I was talking about in the article I wrote. We should be in control of the situation. We don't have a lot of resources but we have to do what we gotta to get things done.....

hmmmm, indeed
Hmmmm indeed, Shelley. You know, instead of welcoming their FELLOW COUNTRYMEN with open arms, revising city/county budgets and doing WHATEVER needs to be done in order to accommodate the N.O. evacuees, they are treating them as they would foreigners, illegal immigrants or anyone that doesn't quite fit the mold (actually this is a noticeable trend... calling the evacuees "refugees", the situation, "Third World"...). Alarmingly (or not...) some born'nbred Americans are still not entitled to the perks of citizenship... (whatever that may be, if a CITIZEN can't relocate without being spoken of or treated like they just hopped the border). Logistical questions of "rising crime rates... job availability....housing....." seem to override basic human principles of just plain HELPING WHEN SOMEONE IS IN NEED (citizen or not)! For real, when is it a "good" time for tragedy to occur? When would conditions be "ideal" to justify stretching resources? I WAS feeling what the mayor said about taking a map and erasing the lines though.... it's an indication of progressive thinking on this matter--which is promising. Perhaps, this is all of little consequence anyway, because I wouldn't wish Central Cali on ANYBODY.... soooo not the place to be!
