Small Consolation

It’s probably of little consolation to residents in storm ravaged New Orleans that the devestation could’ve been much worse, but for a bit of Midwestern dry air that weakened the storm before it slammed into the Gulf coast.

For up-to-the-minute reports and commentary, as well as really heart-wrenching observations and worry, remember to visit our sister site Metroblogging New Orleans. While we would rather not link to them under such circumstance, the authors over there are really rising to the task of capturing the event and making sure it remains personal, rather than simply information relayed by a talking network head.

Our prayers continue to be with them, their families, friends, and community.

    Thanks…I have found it on my own..as I did this..and I just want to say that I only hope we here in SF,or in CA don’t have an earthquake as I fear that we will be in for much the same treatment as that of our fellow Americans..and brothers and sisters in New Orleans and Mississippi,and Alabama…shoddy and slow help coming from them…as all of the troops,supplies..equipment needed to build the cities for the survivors..is in Iraq..and not available to our own citizens here in this country.I think Mr.Bush should bring our troops home now;or start a slow reduction of maintenance and supplies etc…going over there…and begin to build up our forces for the homefront and its emergencies such as this hurricane and the consequences.
