More Than A Few Cloves ... The Garlic Special - Hurricane Katrina Redux

The Garlic Special - Hurricane Katrina Redux

With today being the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina slamming into the Gulf Coast and, subsequently, in the days that followed, contributed to the flooding of the great city of New Orleans, we reach back into The Garlic’s archives (Hey, it saves you a hour, or so, of using the Search Box and pouring through all the posts) to present all the hard-hitting posts from that time period (and, a little beyond).

As Steven Wright once said that “I put instant coffee in a microwave and almost went back in time”, we’re not sure what a retro look at blog posts might rain down on us, but here they are, in chronological/date-order.

Lastly, perhaps, rather then remembering the sadness and tragedy associated with this date, let’s look at it as a very bright beginning, when the curtain was pulled back from the Orwellian White House, exposing to a much larger number of Americans, the incompetence and arrogance of President George Walker Bush and his administration, a view that becomes brighter and clearer to this very day.
