No Arms - Jazzfest, New Orleans 4/2007
copyright Wm. Greiner

The Associated Press reported on May 20th, in an article titled “Nagin, city staffers to get crisis training”, that the New Orleans mayor and staff will train to respond to natural disasters in a seminar which will include lectures, planning sessions, practical exercises and (get this) simulated disaster role playing!!!

It strikes me as a bit odd that a mayor and an administration which governed through the worst natural disaster in U.S. history would need such training? You would think they could be doing the training? The kicker , however, is the fact that the seminar will be sponsored by FEMA!
That is strange.

I really appreciate the items you find. Every time I check in here I feel like I'm getting the real deal on New Orleans.

Your pix are great. I like the way your flash opens up the portraits.
