Thanks for the link, Editilla. We will have our web person add the links - Kindra's charity wasn't online yet when the story was written.

I think it is going to be up to the Gulf Coast media (reporters, photographers, bloggers, videographers, TV news) to keep reporting stories about people like Kindra from ground level...and to question what we're being told at every turn.

Thank you, Kevin. I still can't stop crying, going on an hour now.

You are correct, it is as Ashley Morris said over and over: we are Sinn Féin.

I've gotten to where I absolutely love Gambit, the mag and the blog. So, pardons for my rudeness in the comment. I think the whole operation has jumped an order of magnitude in quality since Clancy picked you outta da'draft, and please let Alex Woodward know how much I appreciated that article.
This is real journalism.
