Poll indicates people want to move on from Katrina - The blizzard of Hurricane Katrina anniversary coverage was of some interest to Daily Report readers, but many think it's time to move on. According to an on-line survey, 47% of readers say they looked at some of the Katrina coverage, but they were ready to go to another topic. Forty-four percent say "enough already" to the news reports, while nearly 9% say they couldn't get enough of the news. More than 1,250 people responded to the survey.
