Sally reminds me that about Phil Levine’s wonderful Labor Day poem, What Work Is. Max Leach recorded Levine reading the poem a while back and we put it online soon after as part of the Internet Poetry Archive.
About half a dozen people have sent me notes about or links to The Interdictor, a blog that is now called the Survival of New Orleans blog includes picture feeds (astounding fire pics) and lots and lots of comments and many on the ground observations.
Cyberjournalist lists many Katrina blogs and collections.
I am not a big sports fan and even less a fan of football. That said the News and Observer’s web cartoon of NCSU’s head football coach Chuck Amato influenced by Napoleon Dynamite (not Elvis Costello but the recent movie) is very funny. Especially funny to me as I remember Chuck Amato as a student football player who lived in my dorm and indeed stuck his chest out a lot. Often it seemed like his body was defying gravity and I am certain that he could not see his toes when he walked.
