Yesterday, David Sutterland stopped by and left a comment:
Dingo, Hello. We don't know each other, nor am I personally aware of boomr except through my wife, Cyli. My wife has a blog and often spoke of boomr when she'd read other's blogs. My wife is currently in NO with a FEMA team, she has been there since before the hurricane hit. Contact with her has been sporadic, but she did manage to get to email a post before her blackberry died and she went into NO communication bubble. In it she spoke of her concern for boomr and asked anyone to leave a message if they knew if he was safe! I wanted to thank you for these updates Dingo. As soon as I hear from my wife, I will let her know boomr and his family are safe!! Good Luck to MoM and everyone else working to aid these victims.
David has taken over his wife's blog while she is down in N.O. helping the victims. Please stop by and leave a comment for her. And please continue to keep everyone in your prayers and thoughts.
Note: To all of you numbskulls out there that keep blaming this on the people who didn't evacuate, here are the facts. 28% of the population of New Orleans is living below the poverty line. That is about 350,000 people with no money, no car, nowhere and no way to run. If you have no car, how do you evacuate? If you have no money, how do you buy one of the limited bus tickets out of town? If you have no money, how do you pay for a hotel room even if you can get out of town? Most of these people have their entire extended family in one part of town. They had nowhere to go. Please stop blaming the victims.
