Thanks Are in Order

A couple of weeks ago I sent e-mails to numerous bloggers asking that they post about an editorial the Sunherald did called Mississippi's Invisible Coast .

I am overdue thanking the following bloggers for helping out:

Blackfive

Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler

Confederate Yankee

Sgt. Hook

Basil's Blog

Solomonia

I do not know of any link between our efforts and for the news item which has recently shown up at Yahoo News but it does mention the editorial. It also mentions a few facts which tend to get overlooked. New Orleans had 1,038 deaths, Mississippi had 238. New Orleans had 6,000 homes destroyed, Mississippi had 65,000. I grieve for the loss of lives in both New Orleans and in my state. My wish is for Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi to continue rebuilding. The slogan along the Mississippi Coast is "Together, We Rebuild".

I was just getting ready to send you the link to the Yahoo article but saw you already had it. I'm glad MS is starting to step out of NOLA's shadow. My prayers are with you.

The cold statistics of the destruction don't tell the human losses. I hope the relief effort is working better now and making it better for people.
