  • Blog Post: The accidental New Orleans evacuatee is back in Seattle

    Despite the thunderstorms and tornados associated with Tropical Storm Fay and the mandatory evacuation of New Orleans due to Gustav, my speaking tour was a success.

    Update 10/30/2005: The answer to my own question: Save Waveland!! Maybe it is way too early to be asking this question, but I want to start doing fundraisers up here specifically for the reconstruction of Waveland, MS. I guess it is going to take a while for local government to get reorganized...
  • Blog Post: CNN Video of Waveland - Note how the beach looks

    Save Waveland - Click here to learn how I can't place where they are standing. Must be somewhere between Coleman Avenue and Bay St. Louis line.
