Relevant New Orleans services and links

Briefly: I'm just horrified number and scope of fuck-ups surrounding New Orleans' sad fate. That's all I want to say about that.

Here are links which should receive more references:
  1. katrina.com -- a website developer converted her web-design site into an information clearninghouse. Good for her.
  2. US Department of Homeland Security missing persons report
  3. Special map of New Orleans.
  4. Phone interview with Roy Nagin of New Orleans. This will give you a sense of the situation in New Orleans. This is an angry and desparate man. Listen to what he says.
One final thought: People are very interested in providing message board services for finding relatives. Great idea. Please, please take into consideration the threat of predators who will troll these sites looking for children that are missing their parents. I don't know if you can prevent it, but think about what you're doing is all I'm saying. Bless you all.
