A summary of all the New Orleans posts so far, with a place to comment and add pointers.
Today I did "normal" stuff in New Orleans. Went out for some Dunkin Donuts in Metarie, drove by some old places I lived (a couple were destroyed in Katrina, that helped me understand, just a little, what it must be like for people who live here now), went for a walk around uptown, got a haircut and beard trim, shopped for groceries and went to a movie at a local theater. Tonight I'm going to read a book, and get ready to travel back to the Bay Area tomorrow.
Earlier this month college students from Ohio came to New Orleans to help with the cleanup.
Mini-review of King Kong -- Yuck! I didn't like it at all. 98 percent action, 1 percent acting, 1 percent bad acting. Lord of the Rings meets Spiderman meets Indiana Jones meets Jurassic Park meets Titanic. 3 hours of unrealistic death-defying crap. Totally over-rated. I almost walked out eight times.
Then I went to see what Yahoo says, and even though it gets super-high ratings, they do not recommend it for me. Should have checked before I went. I gave it a D. (Even though I do love Naomi Watts. What a waste of a great actress.)

Eric Rice spies the water line in some of the New Orleans pictures. It's amazing how the eye doesn't see it for a while, and then you see it all over the place.
