can't go, but here's what i can do - if you're bringing a camera, get your interviews on tape(dvcam, preferably, but i can use anything) and i'll cut something together for you. i just did something for spocko over his little brouhaha. i've got that vid and footage i shot in nola when i was there in april up on my youtube channel - search "danmcenroe".

if you're interested, reply to the e-mail addy attached to this post.


Please put me on the list. I am not yet sure I can make the trip, but I'd like to.

If I can't make the trip, I will definitely lend support in whatever way I can- $$ or something else.

Put me on the list.

Aw, man, my mom's already bought her ticket to come visit that week or I would be there. Let us know if we can help with $, and if you get a chance to check out Carrollton and give us a report on the state of things there, that would be great.

Thanks for doing this.

This may dovetail with existing plans, no promises.

keep us all posted, and prep the PayPal account - we should at least buy you guys work gloves and respirators (for the mold).

Please put me on the list, too. I can't promise I can attend but, being freshly divorced, it's certainly a possibility.

I hope I can join you. Thanks for doing this.

Would that I could. Bless you.

I replied to Scout's e-mail. You can probably count me in.

I wish I could join you, but I just no longer have that kind of stamina, to work that long. If $$ help let me know and I will do what I can that way. Oh, how I wish I could join you.

Well, I'll probably be unable to go but I will certainly support the effort, and see if there are others in my area who could do something about it.

But you never know, stranger things have happened!

Oh, I really want to. Let me check my schedule and see if I can make it ($ is snug at present, blasted car problems). However, if I do have a new car by then and can find a place to stay that doesn't kill my budget, I am in. Also, might be able to share a room w/folks. I am tight w/my usual haunt (a BnB on the edge of the Qtr - Esplanade/Rampart), and might be able to score some rooms (helping out a local biz while helping locals! Bonus!).
Scout, I will send you my e-mail!

Hmmmm, maybe I can beam down or something. I also will definitely donate to make sure you have the best quality respirators you need. A relative lived there and had had to leave another visited right after the flooding and got "The Katrina Kough" which was based on the mold, but nobody talked about it because that would be informing people about the dangers and they really just wanted us all to shut up.

So, protective gear is a MUST for those precious lung sacks!

We will definitely be wearing protective gear

Scout, I live here and I'll be joining you. I have a spare room, too.

Cool dangerblond!!!

not just respirators, good gloves too.

Gotta protect those bloggin' fingers.


You please know you and Mr A are of course welcome to stay @ the compound....we'd love to have you all.

Scout - no arguement - you staying w/ us.

Crap. Mr. jezebel and I thought we were going to be able to make it and were getting really excited about the trip. We've got a work conflict now -- don't know if we can get around it but so far not looking good. If we can get there, we will.

This is still on, right?

I've cleared my schedule ... still hoping for flight prices to drop a bit, but worst case scenario, I could drive. I'd rather not ...

I'll get my hotel reservation done today. I'm planning to be there, barring unforeseen circumstances.

Yes Sinfonian...it's on.
I emailed you

I'm not a blogger, not much of a writer, but I'd like to help. Just moved here from Los Angeles. My house might be finished, but it looks more like April. I'm renting an unfurnished place from a friend. Sleeping on an air matress, but there's a big screened in porch, room for anyone who can bring their own bed.


Please check out the wiki for the Geek Dinner that we're throwing in your honor, and add your list of participants.


It will be great to see you again!

I'm officially IN.

Flight and hotel are booked. See you soon!

I don't know of any of you will be checking this, but a box of 11 3M P100 respirators have been shipped to your location for you all to wear during your house gutting chores. I don't want you to get sick from mold.
We Vulcan's understand hostile environments and want to protect our friends when they are in them.

I just found this blog from a link from Eschaton.

You know, I am actually going to be visiting friends in NO from March 38 to April 3. I would be happy to be of help (not that I know much about either construction or demolition) and I am going to be in town, so I will contact you once I'm there, let you know where I'm staying, and give you my cell phone number.

so stay tuned. I just found about this, and I may be able to help. I'd love to be of some use, if I can be .... this sound *much* better than just touring bars in the French quarter.

hello !
