I've been quite depressed about the New Orleans situation since Saturday night. I've stopped myself from writing about it until now because I don't think I have the skill to write anything worthy of the magnitude of the situation, which is rapidly deteriorating.
I went to New Orleans in 2003, for a week, for the first Plone Conference. It was an amazing week. I'll forget the conference long before I'll forget the time I spent in the city, if ever. Tulane was beautiful. The French Quarter, Canal Street, seeing the Mississippi, the French Market, the restaurants I enjoyed, the people, nearly all wonderful, and those who weren't just added to the memories. :-)
Right now it looks like New Orleans will never be the same. I'll do my best to remember how it was.
I wish the best for all the people affected along the Gulf Coast, and their families.
