Katrina Links Update V


"When that storm came through at first, people said, whew. There was a sense of relaxation, and that's what I was referring to. And I, myself, thought we had dodged a bullet. You know why? Because I was listening to people, probably over the airways, say, the bullet has been dodged. And that was what I was referring to."

Brian, thanks very much for linking me, and more important, for putting up some many helpful updates. I'm esp looking for material on the environmental effects and their (mis)management.

All the best,

Kaspit (i.e., Quicksilver)
