      As a native of New Orleans having spent half of my life there growing up in New Orleans antebellum Garden District I can tell you whatever news you get is not even 10% of what is happening.

      I have a daughter, son-in-law and three grandchildren who are now in the midst of relocating to Chicago as their lives are uprooted, not to mention various aunts, uncles and cousins. My son-in-law and daughter have to walk away from a large business, remove their children from schools and begin to plan a whole new life. My son-in-law's family is an old established New Orleans family with homes on St. Charles Ave. and a very large food distribution business that supplied all of the area super markets, restaurants and casinos into the Gulf Coast. Their plant was blocks away from the Super Dome and they had literally tons of food they wanted to give to the relief effort that officials failed to use and subsequently spoiled.

      The stories coming out of New Orleans even this evening show things are steadily degenerating. While some of those at the Super Dome have been evacuated there are scores (thousands) of people who no longer rely on the US Government to assist them and have taken matters into their own hands. George Bush's father lost his re-election to Bill Clinton partly because of FEMA's failure to respond to Hurricane Andrew in Florida. This Bush will go down in history as another failure for both Iraq lies and emergency responses to this US crisis.

      For those of you who are interest in how bad things really are, and for your students to learn some important lessons in current world history you can monitor events live and archived at this link and get the true story of what's going on the ground in New Orleans and the surrounding area: http://www.wwltv.com The link at the top of the page is the live streaming video reporting with other links to archives. This is the only true reporting that covers all the gory details, not CNN or BBC. This is Realty Central.

        Dear Andy,
        Somehow a great disaster such as Katrina becomes even
        worse when you know someone whose life has been
        touched personally. We have been following news
        reports daily, sadly on CNN, where we know media is
        filtering what and how the news is presented. I am
        grateful that you have related your family's personal
        perspective, as well as links to a more accurate
        picture.

        I wish you and your family strength and perseverance
        in coping with the uncertainty of the weeks ahead.
        Thinking of you,
        Leanne

          Dear Andrew and all American Webheads,

          Although I'm sure Andrew is right that we're not seeing even 10% of
          what is happening in New Orleans, Mississippi, etc., even the little
          we did see was shocking beyond belief. Please accept my heart-felt
          sympathy and condolences. I especially feel very much for those of
          you who had personal losses. I can relate to that after our 8 years
          of war, and pray to God for all those who have lost lives, health,
          property, hopes, memories, integrity, or security. I can hardly
          bear to think of it.

          And yet let us not forget that there are millions of other people
          elsewhere, sharing a similar yet crueller, more prolonged fate, not
          at the hands of Nature, but at the hands of human beings. I offer a
          prayer for one and all in the same breath: Dear God, deliver us
          from the hands of Katrina, and deliver us from the hands of George!
          Amen.

          Praying for you hourly,
          Susan Marandi @>---;-

            Dear Andy,
            I have been very behind with getting through my webhead emails. When I read your letter I was sure feeling connected to you. I also have family who had to evacuate. I never lived in New Orleans but we visited there in July and had a big family reunion so I took a lot of photos and video taped much of the area where my cousin lives. My cousin worked in downtown New Orleans, in a bank which is now gone, but his home is in Slidell and he and his wife evacuated to Georgia to live with their daughter. I have been watching the news everyday and, just like everyone else, am devistated by all the deaths and destruction. Thanks for sharing about your family. I deeply wish them well.

                Dear Andy,

                My heart goes out to you and your family. You have given so much to the
                Webheads community that I hope that I/we can give something back. In
                the first few days after the hurricane, I was restless and wanted to go
                there personally to help shuttle people out, seeing that not much was
                happening on the federal level. In fact, my colleagues and I (and
                probably a lot of other people) have been shocked at the inadequate
                response right after the disaster and the long response time for help to
                arrive. In the words of one of my relatives in Iran, speaking of both
                the lack of adequate help and the problems with the levees-"How can this
                happen in the most developed country in the world?"

                Andy, beside the monetary donation, which I have already sent to the Red
                Cross, can you think of anything else that can be done from afar? Your
                story and description make it very clear that the disaster is one of
                far-reaching consequences that will affect all of us for several years
                to come. Too little was done now and before, and I hope, our political
                leaders are paying attention and learning from this.

                BTW, the live video stream at http://www.wwltv.com was excellent. I
                watched it for almost 2 hours yesterday.

                in New Orleans antebellum Garden District I can tell you whatever news
                you get is not even 10% of what is happening.

                I have a daughter, son-in-law and three grandchildren who are now in the

                an old established New Orleans family with homes on St. Charles Ave. and
                a very large food distribution business that supplied all of the area
                super markets, restaurants and casinos into the Gulf Coast. Their plant

                  I want to thank you so much for sharing your personal insights and
                  experiences about New Orleans. It really makes a difference to know
                  someone personally who is involved and not just see it and hear about
                  it from news sources. I also took advantage of some of the links and
                  the live coverage provided from http://www.wwltv.com

                  Of course, I wish your family all the best in adjusting to a whole new
                  life.
