  •  Thanks for the idea (4.00)
    I just sent this to Anderson Cooper 360.
    •  Kenner (4.00)
      I think he said he's going to be in Kenner next week.  I'm assuming that's in LA, but I could be wrong.  Anybody know if it's near Bogalusa?
      •  Kenner (4.00)
        Isn't that below NO?  

        We are fucking ignored here, NO national media has EVER been here...we need them now.

        I don't have the capability to upload fotos cuz of dialup...

        •  Kenner (none)
          is a suburb of N.O. It's where the airport is located.
        •  Barbara, (none)
          I don't know about the logistics for you, but if you can get me the pics by mail, this might be impossible for you right now but, I will be glad to upload and host some for you, maybe for a follow up diary.  

          Thank you for being there for people.  I will email CNN and MSNBC...the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

      •  Unfortunately not (none)
        Just did a Map check and looks like Kenner is just South of NOLA, and Bogalusa is about 70 miles North.
        •  Yeah (none)
          I just looked too.  He was in Baton Rouge before and now off to Kenner from NO.  Cooper would be best, but if we bug them maybe we can get somebody else out there.
          •  Hell (4.00)
            I'll go get them
            •  map (none)
              Barb- From New Orleans, take I-10W to Baton Rouge, get off at the Airport exit, head to the airport, most likely where Anderson will be. From Kenner to Bogalusa: go back to I-10, take it East back towards New Orleans, about three miles or so, take the Causeway exit to Covington (North), back over I10- the second off ramp, I think. Take the Causeway bridge over Lake Ponchartrain to Covington (maybe a toll), if they have booth operators on duty. Once in Covington, Bogalusa is West, so follow signs to it.

              Can't remember what parish Bogalusa is (Tangipahoa?), but go find the sheriff / deputies, and talk to them. Get the names of poeple you wan to help. That area is close, and it will make thigns work faster with if you say that John & Mary Walker need food, rather than just generic.

              Also, got check Ponchatoula, west of Bogalusa My ex's family, the McLendons's, live there, and that area also get ignored.

      •  outlying New Orleans (none)
        Kenner is part of the greater New Orleans area; home of the New Orleans International airport. This is in Jefferson Parish where the canal floodwall broke and flooded the neighborhoods, sadly trapping those left in nursing homes.
        Kenner is 68% Anglo, compared to New Orleans which is 69% Black. There are also a lot of Vietnemese families and businesses in Kenner.

        Thank you, Barbara, for your hard work. Best wishes.
