New Orleans LiveJournal Blog: Survival of New Orleans

The New Orleans webcam to which I posted a link earlier this morning has a livejournal blog (or vice versa) run by New Orleans resident and libertarian Michael Barnett, who is still running a datacenter (just) in New Orleans as he keeps his blog updated on events around him. Background here. Michael's blog here or here (depending on resources I guess). Pictures here (be patient - lots of people looking). Of his blog Michael says,
Now this journal exists to share firsthand experience of the disaster and its aftermath with anyone interested.
Its latest recounts a story from the Convention Center where an estimated 10,000 people have been waiting three days for promised buses, which have yet to show up.

Pictured right is another jazzman from the birthplace of jazz, where the Saints continue not to be coming in: a true gentleman and an ambassador of jazz, Wynton Marsalis. I needed to post it to pay tribute to what seems the death throes of the jazz's birthplace, and also to get that picture of the murderer from the top of my blog before I head out for a drink.

[UPDATE: Wired has a piece on The Interdictor/Survival of New Orleans blog explaining what where, when and why. "It may be the only blog currently both written and hosted inside New Orleans, and it's receiving nearly 3,000 visitors an hour." Hat tip SOLO.]

I reckon that'll be one libertarian moaning about the government not doing enough.
