Exclamation Thanks RP

Tony Bennett may have left his heart in San Francisco, but I left mine in New Orleans. I figure I have a 50/50 shot being called out on a Disaster Medical Assistance Team soon. To put this in perspective, my best friend and his wife are lucky enough to be in Baton Rouge at a motel. The last report they had was that their home was under 12 feet of water. Many people of the Crescent City and the extensive afflicted area are not so lucky. Folks, if you cannot send yourself to help, send money. Go to www.redcross.org We need your help. Thanks RP for putting a Red Cross banner on the front page. - J. E. Landrum, photo screener

What an absolute tragedy down there.

Here's a bit of history captured; this bridge is gone:

I agree, what a really sad tragedy.

It makes you realize how lucky you are to have a house on dry ground, and a disaster like this one makes you grateful to even have a life to live.

My thoughts and prayers go to the people affected.
