Storm study to model warming effects ~Mark Schleifstein
~In a hurricane modeled at 185-meter (202-yard) resolution, a smooth ring of strong wind appears around the eye (left). When the resolution is increased to 62 meters (68 yards), the ring breaks into a set of small, turbulent segments (right). Each image covers an area of 37x37 km (23x23 miles).

Levee panel seeks more applicants ~Sheila Grissett
~In addition to these four openings, the committee is recommending reappointment of one east bank commissioner, Tom Jackson.
~Editilla gotta ax~ 2 questions...
1) Why have you not asked the Levee Board about Tom Jackson's past and current ASCECORPS associations and the glaring Conflict of Interests reflected therein?
2) Did you by chance ask for (and can you please give us) a list of the other Applicants names?
We The People should be given a chance to check them out, as we simply cannot trust the Levee Board's own deliberations --while they still involve such a prominent former ASCECORPS consultant contractor
as Tom Jackson.
We ask everyone to join in soliciting this information from the Levee Board so we can report it forthwith upon receipt or not. So we can get back to having Trust. However, we tire at having to once again ask Picayune Questions while your "reportage" Provides No Answers, but merely "Announcements".
3) Why ask Why.

City of Living Metaphor
~One can often see more of New Orleans in the blink of an eye or casual glance... than in all of the photographs, television exposes or movies every shown. Hidden in plain view, bundling out of flower pots or cool, shaded courtyard gardens behind little wrought iron doors with tiny windows in the middle of them, she is a city of living metaphor...
