BBC's take on Katrina

BBC's take on New Orleans

And another article BBC.

These show different perspectives on the situation. I'm not bashing Americans BTW--some of my best friends are Americans :) I'm just mesmerized by the whole terrible situation and looking forward to those people still suffering finding hope. I saw a wonderful piece on Minnesota News (KARE?), where a man gave a house to a family, rent free for a year. They had never met.

What a wonderful gesture. Wonderful people.

    I have a buyer of commercial mortgage note site. It pretty much covers buyer of commercial mortgage note related information.

    Come and check it out if you get time :-)

  3. pitty every one not like that. oh look you have spam

  4. This situation is just beyond horrible. I visited New Orleans back in the '90's and just loved the whole feel of the city. Very Southern, very eclectic. I think now about the places I visited and wonder, is it still there? And the history! There is SO MUCH history down is just so very, very sad.

  5. Interesting to read everyone's viewpoint on the tragedy. It was horrible. Hey, Canada has sent 3 ships and 91,000 tanks of gas!

  6. Melissa--I've always wanted to go--hope it regains what it lost. Don't know if it ever can.

    Kendra--other countries care about what's going on too. Even Sri Lanka sent aid. Isn't that wonderful? I hope it goes to the people who lost everything and need to rebuild from scratch!

  7. It's wonderful to have everyone pulling together like this. :) So very nice.

  8. Toni, for what's it worth, here's some info on ridding of those pesky spammers.

    "For those having problems with blogs on blogspot getting hit by
    spammers, a new feature was just added in the last day or so, and I
    just heard about it. you can now turn on a word verification image
    that will show a visual image when someone is commenting so they can
    input that when leaving their comment. This is similar to the blog
    spamming blockers you see when you hit blogs using Wordpress. A bit of
    hassle needing to type in the extra letters from the picture, but for
    those getting hit by spam a great deal, it should help stop those
    problems from happening. Automated spammers won't be able to comment
    it looks like.

    Just go into your settings and look for word verification under your
    comments settings and turn it on. i know a lot of bloggers are having
    spam issues on blogspot, so I thought mention it."
