Katarina Coverage

Donate Now!!!The waters are beginning to recede. Who knows what will happen next. Harry Connick Jr, says he saw a bar open on Bourbon Street. And well, that sounds mighty fine to me. 3 for 1 anyone? No? Okay...

2 of my favorite columnists have written their Eulogies? No... tributes to the city of New Orleans. Simmons. Conlin. If only I can write like these fellows. I'm spending too much time trying to find hyperlinks, when I should just finish my damn thoughts.

  • Who to blame?
    Can we build better levees? Can we save this town? Should we have been able to save the town before it died? Can Superman fly around the sun and turn back time?
  • What Went Wrong?
    Okay, Maybe we can blame someone right?
  • Hope in the Ruins
    Dennis Hastert doesn't think we should rebuild the city. But there are some people who won't let the indomitable spirt of the city go.
  • 6 Babies on the Road...
    This story reminds me of the Hooters song... "Where Do The Children Go?"

    Surrender into the night.
    Silently take my hand.
    Nobody knows what's inside us.
    Nobody understands.
    They handed us down a dream
    To live in this lovely town.
    But nobody hears the music,
    Only the echo of a hollow sound.

    Where do the children go,
    Between the bright night and darkest day?
    Where do the children go?
    And who's that deadly piper who leads them away?

    Together we make our way
    Passengers on a train.
    Whisper a secret forever.
    Promises in the rain.
    We're leaving it all behind,
    While castles are falling down.
    We're going where no one can find us.
    And if there's a heaven,
    We'll find it somehow.

    Where do the children go,
    Between the bright night and darkest day?
    Where do the children go?
    And who's that deadly piper who leads them away?

  • Wiki entry for New Orleans
    The power and the immediacy of the internet doesn't just mean that news gets spread faster. But also, a living history can be recorded. That is the power of the Wiki.
  • Michael Jackson Writes Song About Hurricane
    Let's hope he's not trolling the Gulf for the 6 kids we just talked about.
  • Generosity at all time high...
    People are handing over money... And they should. Give to the Red Cross or any other charity you think are helping.
  • Craigs List New Orleans
    After my trip to New Orleans this spring, we posted on here looking for some girls we had met, who were actually from Austin. Never caught up to those girls. But it's interesting that people are offering their homes to people down there... unfortunately, there is no one in the town and if they are... they don't have internet access. Unless the Riverwalk is open? That's where I did all my surfing!
  • George Will on Leviathan in Louisiana
    A Classic take on the horror that the South is Facing. What will be the inventions that will come out of this disaster? And is there really a Lib or Con way of looking at this disaster?

  • TMQ | Easterbrook's Haiku Predictions
    You know I was thinking, isn't Haiku really a primitive form of poetry? I mean I understand the hole syllable thing? But doesn't it make more sense in a language like Japanese? Where the same word can mean 80 different things just by changing the inflection? In English, Haiku's just seem like a really bad MadLibs.
  • Sen. Russ Feingold -- The Anti War candidate
    This guy is going to RILE some people up on the right. He won't get elected, but the RIGHT will spend so much time trying to belittle this guy, they will forget to hit Clinton or Gore Or Kerry or Kerrey Or Lieberman or Clark or Dean or Rendell or Biden or Cunningham whoever the Dems are going to put out in 2008.
