Gulf Coast Photos

A reader sent in these photos nearly two weeks ago. I’ve wanted to do some research and put together a major post like I did with some aerial post-Katrina photos in September, but I can see that I’m just plain not going to get to it.

The photos are great and deserve to be seen, so I’m simply going to post them without commentary. Click each for a better look.

They were taken on January 16th. That’s two weeks ago. And it still looks like this.

Even though the plight of the residents of Mississippi and Alabama who were hit by Hurricane Katrina never received a lot of attention while everyone watched New Orleans, even though what little coverage there ever was has faded away, the wreckage is still there and there are still people in a bad way.

Don’t forget them.

Many thanks to the reader who took these and sent them in.
