5. I'm glad we don't have HBO
If we did, I'd feel compelled to watch it and I just know I'd get furious. Just the memory of it is enough to make me see red--reliving it would send me round the bend.

8. Thanks. I had lost track of the time. It will be painful but it should
not/never be forgotten. Multiple crimes were committed to destroy one of the most precious treasures in America. Not the least of which was the taking the Army Corps of Engineers budget away from the levees to the Iraq war. Check the archives of the NO Times Picayune.

12. Yes, sorry . :)
Sorry you're missing it, it will almost certainly be on dvd, and I'm willing to be you could probably get it throught bitttorrent sometime much sooner.

There are residents saying that they heard explosions---and a person or two said that back during Hurricane Betsy, the ninth ward was intentionally flooded (with explosions of the levees) to save the richer areas.

Not proven or disproven, but someone said you'd think they'd want to investigate that just to prove it for once and for all.

people swear they heard explosions in morning after Katrina. Hard to say. Thanks for posting and telling what they are talking about/showing. Peace and love to those there or involved.
