New Orleans Metblog on Tagesthemen

Just watching Tagesthemen with a report on Hurricane Katrina hitting New Orleans. And they are directly quoting the reports on Metblogs New Orleans as being more direct and unfiltered than “classical” journalism.


See the report as livestream here or read the article on the Tagesthemen Website.

    Well the media here in Berlin, Germany is full of storm coverage. I just returned from Denmark and have to call my friend in Miami – as I read it has been directly hit.

    Hope you all are fine and safe – I never imagined it could become worse like this. It’s like ‘Escape from L.A.’ but it’s real. Fortunately, this time it has hit a better-prepared area than the Tsunami area this winter in Asia.

    Best regards,
    Christian from Berlin, Germany.

    You know this is the perfect timing to bring up the climate and the Kyoto Protcol. Maybe Bush and all other Americans find it easier to relate to it and the side effects right now. ;)

    (I know this comment probably gets me bad karma, so sue me!)

    Well, it is hard to put this onto the sufffering peolpe in New Orleans, but as Till said, maybe this puts environmental protection into a new perspective for the US government. See also:,1518,372434,00.html

    Bush should sign into law to make Hurricanes and other Natural Disasters illegal. Since these are considered as Acts of God, and religious people back this up, then we should hold the religious people responsible. In the most recent case, the US would then have a class action lawsuit against religious people and make them pay for the damages. Why not, they support God and his actions so they are just as accountable. Let’s see how many people keep going to church. Atleast the money would be better spent in helping the victims of disasters instead of pedophile priests.

    I live in CA now, had been in NO 20 years. My wife BJ (Bower) and I are heartbroken over the tragedy; we got Susan, her daughter out just in time. I am now looking for my son, Robert (Bobby) Johnson, who lives/d in SLidell at 170 Fountain Drive with Bridget and 5 kids. Have heard nothing. ANYTHING would be a blessing. Please call 831-338-3105 or email Our hearts and prayers are with ALL of y’all, for sure.
