Camera keeps blinking (Staring at the teeth of the University dragon).

The library of the school we worked on yesterday, pre-cleanup:


The power cut out last night before I could finish uploading, but being the smart person I was I published before it was all done...so here are another 50 pictures or so. Also, my Photobucket account went over, so I've started another for the remaining N.O. pictures. Here. Cheers!

Also, here's something I found from a while back: A list of the funny costume descriptions given in manufacturer's magazines that I was keeping while I worked at Future Memories. Some of these are priceless...I had to fix all of them and make them saleable, unfortunately.

These accounts and photos give me a sense of what happened to N.O. like few others I've seen. I feel both pessimistic (for my generation of so-called 'leaders' who abandoned these people in time of greatest need) -- and optimistic (when I see a generation that is willing to do the hard work with so much spirit and enthusiasm). Also, some girls actually look good in HazMat suits. XXXOOO. Dad B.
