    This story is beautifully realized and executed. It is concise and yet replete with detail. I am looking forward to being able to get a hard copy for the high school library I work in.
    Great work.

    Good grief. Don’t think I didn’t catch the irony [or, is that iron knee?] that one of ‘em was holding a box of water while standing thigh deep in Katrina deluge. And that bald dude is like a Hip-Hop Charlie Brown. Once again, Josh, you manage to bring levity to disaster which is probably the only way I could handle such devistation and horror. I think I might’ve stayed, too, to protect my goods and wares. Lil’ did they know. Impending doom never seemed so calm.

    Kate, Thanks for the kind observations. We do anticipate a book publication of A.D., and it would be my fondest wish for it to be available in libraries all over, a document in its own way of the story of Hurricane Katrina.

    Dino, Glad you dig Mansell’s Charlie Brown shirt. He needed a design down there, and that’s what came to mind (and pen).

    About the flooding: it seems that depending on which part of the city you lived in, the water came incredibly fast or sneakingly snow. In Uptown, where Hamid’s store is located, the water rose inch by inch, hour by hour. But in the end, the damage it wrought was just as devastating. With this chapter, I’m really trying to capture that creeping horror.

    Hey Y’all,
    I just can’t believe I haven’ seen this story until now! It is incredible. I was there at Roberts’ too.

    I posted today’s chapter onto the New Orleans News Ladder, after wondering if I should have started at the beginning, then figuring that your website can take care of bringing everyone up to date.

    I just launched the NO News Ladder last week and hope to kick it out daily for Nola News what-nots & griad’gris.
    Please check out the site and say hello. Let me know if you like it or don’t.

    I was living there for the storm + 6 days before escaping to Baton Rouge in a pick-up truck with dog Flora, guitar, back pack and bicycle. As yet still a nolafugee on the back hand path, a long and winding road home.

    Thank you,
    Bruce Biles
    editor
