Last year at the IACP conference, the food writer’s section was given the challenge to raise awareness about New Orleans. We were asked to spread the word, to not let people forget. The powers that be in the US government didn’t step up to the plate, so it’s up to us. There are groups going there to help rebuild housing, and that’s a very good thing; but just visiting and being there also helps.
In my sidebar, there is a page that is linking to others that are blogging about New Orleans. If you are posting about New Orleans, send me your link and I’ll give you a link to all these other bloggers. It’s a little thing, but little things add up.
I can’t make houses for the people still sleeping under the bridges, I can’t buy a new schoolhouse, but I can make some noise. Join me.

Thanks for setting up this forum! New Orleans is a wonderful city with a unique culture and spirit that deserves our support.
