And The Walls Came Down

These are my own reactions as I watched the Coliseum Square Baptist Church demolished. The first Baptist church in the South, and the first one to give services for the slaves.

For more info about the Church and its highly questionable destruction please pay us a visit at Humid City.

Local Blogger Maitri, who is also a neighbor, has been covering the situation for New Orleans Metroblogging since the fire a few days ago. She was kind enough to take few moments and give us a synopsis of the situation.

I am pleased to announce the reason I have been absent from this project for the past few weeks, a revamp and reboot of my main site Humid City. The site has been expanded and retooled by our new collaborators over at ThinkNOLA and now includes an interactive calendar, a streamlined and more robust interface, and a lot more data!

I have also created a two new "Annex sites,":
Humid City on MySpace which will focus on NOLA based art and music and Humid City on LJ which will be more of a discussion forum. Please stop by and say hello!

I would also like to give a quick shout out to our readers in Italy! Thanks for taking an interest (It's you guys from the radio station in Rome, isnt it?)

Podcasts will be resuming soon and will now be true podcasts, iTunes ready!

NPR : Documenting the 'Great Deluge' of New Orleans

NPR : Documenting the 'Great Deluge' of New Orleans:
(click link to listen to full story)

"Fresh Air from WHYY, May 10, 2006 - Forced out of New Orleans after Katrina hit last year, historian Douglas Brinkley, a professor at Tulane University, soon returned. He helped with rescue efforts and immediately began the task of collecting oral histories of the catastrophe.

The result is his new book, The Great Deluge, which offers a multi-perspective account of the storm and its aftermath. Brinkley is the author of three other historical narratives, including Tour of Duty."

The preceding post about Stephen Colbert was accidently made to this blog rather than to Humid City as intended. I offer my apologies for the off topic content.

Look for a test video today or tomorrow as I try out something new. If everything pans out we will have video clips henceforth as opposed to simple audio files.

My New Hero

I have recently discovered that many people are still unaware of waht happened at the White House Press Correspondant's Dinner the other night. Go to Thank You Stephen Colbert and watch the full speech on the Google Video link.

Trust me.
