Wow. Looks like hurricane Katrina has finally affected me directly. You can’t reach this web site through http://www.phronk.com any more, because apparently the computers that directed people here were blown away by the hurricane. I noticed that my web site wasn’t working, so I went to my internet provider thing and they linked to this web site, where there is a first-hand account of the chaos going on there, from the people who direct people to phronk.com. It’s scary seeing a real personal account like this. The authorities apparently have no control over New Orleans…there are fires and shootings going on…and the guy who’s writing this just recently found out his parents are alive. Tomorrow is supposed to be the official “Help Katrina Victims With Your Blog Day” (it has a real name but I forget it), so I’ll post links for help and stuff tomorrow. Not that anyone will see it until phronk.com surfaces from the flood, but hopefully that will be soon enough to do some good.
In other scary Katrina news, Fats Domino is missing in New Orleans. This seems to just keep getting worse.
