What Team New Orleans Found

Over the next few days I’m going to be posting some of what the team I sent to New Orleans found.


Though I didn’t go personally the subject of New Orleans is very dear to me.

I think what is happening there now is one of the great tragedies of our time and one that we, as a nation, should be disappointed in allowing.

Myself and others involved in this project have gotten bashed, called names, and other shit.

I (mostly) stayed quiet and decided to let the results speak for themselves.

You’ll start seeing them this week.

    That picture is amazing.

    That is a mockup of a painting being done by famous New Orleans painter Amzie Adams. The house used to be a church (it is beautiful inside!) and the woman used to be my wife.

  3. It was always a good idea and always will be a good idea. the intentions were right if anyone knows you. Thgey will do a great job i am sure of it. passionate people always do.

    Adams is a legend. The fact he’s using your ex as a subject says a lot. She is out of your league!!

    Just kidding!:)

    I am looking forward to what your team will be reporting from New Orleans. I think it was smart to wait like you did.

    If you are capturing people like Adams think everyone underestimated you.

    ^ Wow, the person who does english russia is a chartreuse reader?

    I’ve been checking your site since the boing boing link last week. Good stuff. The subway photos were awesome.

    The internet really *is* a small world after all.

  7. Eyes peeled. Thanks for sticking with the project, Char.


  8. And then the local people have the gall to complain that no one has paid any attention to NOLA or the rest of the Gulf region, but they gripe because someone wants to see for themselves? It does say a lot about them, and it is certainly not very positive. I don’t remember them complaining a whole lot when ALA stuck by them and brought their conference to NOLA anyhow when everyone else jumped ship, and this included the many librarians who did quite a bit of volunteer work for their communities while they were there. Just one example of a group of people from outside the area who came in with, oh, what do we call that, good intentions? If that galls them that much, they can always give the money back. Maybe they are mad because you are not pumping a lot of money to the local economy. Oh well, their choice to make and be mad because you did not consult them. Then again, I am not a local, so I am probably some enemy or persona non grata to them by association. Best in your endeavors. Will look forward to your posts as well.

    Dances with Books,
    Give the locals a pass. They have been through the fire and have been used and abused by media. There are no “reserves” there. These people are HEROES. They have put up with horrible conditions and governmental neglect on all levels for a year now. It is easy to be rational when you have not been pushed to the wall.
