Leo McGovernI’m often asked by A.D. readers about the story’s real-life subjects: Denise, Leo & Michelle, Hamid & Mansell, Kwame/Kevin, and The Doctor . The answer is I’ve been in touch with all of them, to varying degrees, over the years, and for the most part they’re doing well.

So, with Hurricane Katrina’s tenth anniversary coming up (officially tomorrow), I thought folks might be interested in a little update. Over the last month I’ve reconnected with Leo, Hamid, Kwame/Kevin, and Dr. Lutz, asking them about how they’re doing, the state of New Orleans, Katrina’s legacy, and their feelings about the 10th anniversary. (Denise, sadly, chose not to be interviewed for this update.) I’ve structured the piece as a sort of conversation among the characters. As you might expect, A.D.’s characters harbor a multitude of feelings around these issues, some in alignment and some in conflict. I wouldn’t have it any other way!

The new comics piece, “Where are they now? Revisiting 4 Katrina survivors 10 years later,” is up at Fusion’s “Graphic Culture” section, and I hope you find it food for thought.

P.S. I also want to thank the Economic Hardship Reporting Project for their assistance on this piece.

Defend New Orleans!

    One more issue is really that video gaming has become one of the all-time most important forms of entertainment for people of various age groups. Kids have fun with video games, and adults do, too. The XBox 360 is just about the favorite gaming systems for many who love to have a lot of activities available to them, in addition to who like to play live with other people all over the world. Thanks for sharing your notions.
