Katrina Anniversary Site Is Launched For Louisiana, New Orleans, Gulf Coast
Written by 

KatrinaKatrina Anniversary Six.

Six years ago Monday, one of the worse natural disasters roared into the Gulf Coast.  For hundreds of miles, life would be never the same.

The world thought New Orleans had been spared except for major wind damage until word leaked out that water was gushing through the city due to broken levees caused by man’s own negligence.

 After that, it became obvious that New Orleans would never be the same.

In commemoration of events that led to a great national debate over whether New Orleans would be or could be rebuilt, and in memory of all of us throughout the world who shared a sense of horror and grief over an act of Mother Nature going mad, Bayoubuzz.com has launched KatrinaAnniversary.com to help serve as a guidepost in history helping all of us to both remember what occurred and to forget what hurts so painfully.

“We built this KatrinaAnniversary.Com community so that people could continue to participate in the discussion about the epochal event that is fading in our collective memories”, said Stephen Sabludowsky creator of the community site and publisher of Bayoubuzz.com.

In the community, visitors can join using their Facebook credentials or by a separate user name and password.  When there, visitors can discuss Katrina-related issues, click on the news stories, put up photos, videos, make friends, view event calendars and engage in many of the activities one would find on social networking sites.

Bayoubuzz has also created a Facebook and the site called Katrina Anniversary.

“We hope that people visit, take a look at many of the incredible videos on the KatrinaAnniversary.com community and simply engage”, said Sabludowsky.  “We see it as an online museum of sorts that we hope will serve the public this anniversary and for the years to come.  It was one of the most disruptive moments in the history of the region.  Everyone has Katrina memories.  Everyone has a Katrina-past”.

  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
