The Rising Tide Conference Banner Unveiled . . .


I like it, comrade.

Care about the future of New Orleans? Understand that the drowning and destruction of New Orleans was not a natural disaster (i.e. a 30-foot high storm surge that swamped Eastern St. Tammany and the Mississippi Gulf Coast), but instead a manmade one due to failures of engineered flood protection systems? Think that government at all levels has failed and continues to fail New Orleans and her citizens?

Yes. Yes. And yes.

Check out the Rising Tide Conference site and the Rising Tide Wiki site about an event being held next weekend organized by a core group of those behind the NOLA Blogs listed in the links to the right. Saturday, 26 August 2006 is the day the bulk of THE RISING TIDE CONFERENCE will take place. The venue is the New Orleans Yacht Club at West End.

Glad to know there'll be a conference on this. I plan to post about it at NewOrleansTruth soon. There needs to be more dialogue on what has happened over the past year and how it could have been better. I pray for good weather during the conference (and always).
