Regardless of your focus, everyone should be concerned about the devastation caused by Katrina. I understand that some newspapers in areas damaged by the storm were only able to publish online. One local website is , with updates on the situation in New Orleans. Another blog has sprung up with the sole purpose of providing details on damage in a suburb of New Orleans. It’s called the “Slidell Hurricane Damage Blog”. Prof. Bainbridge’s blog has a post that refers to the more quotidian practical problems for lawyers and others whose files and offices no longer exist. Events like these make one realize how lucky we are to have been spared the suffering of those along the Gulf Coast.
