Hello to everyone in New Orleans - I'm not sure how many locals can actually read this, but I just wanted to say I'm so sorry to see such devastation to one of my favorite cities. I just can't even imagine what it must be like to be there now. You're in my thoughts and prayers, and I've already donated money and am looking into organizing a food and clothing drive at my office.
Just had to express that...I've been to New Orleans a couple of times and I love the city and its people. Keep the faith.
