The Asian tsunami was horrible and devastating. I watched with the rest of the world, and was saddened by the loss. But I also had no context for it. I’ve never been to Asia. I didn’t know anyone affected.
New Orleans is different. I’ve visited, and loved the city. We know people that live and work there. In fact, Anna was just in NO on Friday helping to implement a new client, Delgado Community College. We were both going to visit them next month. Needless to say, their web page isn’t coming up right now, and they aren’t answering phones.
Best wishes for one of the most unique cities and cultures in the USA.
