I've just returned from the Gulf Coast with several hundred photos of Pascagoula and Ocean Springs, Mississippi, as well as of New Orleans, particularly in the Lower Ninth Ward. If you think the Bush Administration is paying anything more than lip service to revitalizing the Gulf States, then think again. The only true priority in their minds is colonizing the Middle East. That is where all the badly needed funds for reconstruction are going, into the Pentagon cesspool, despite what officials say. Carpetbaggers, crooks, and inefficient bureaucrats are sucking up the rest of the available funds.

To let you see what's going on along the coast, I am going to invite you to view several photo albums of the reality down there, starting with Pascagoula's still rather scenic waterfront in this first article. Pascagoula wasn't hit anywhere near as hard as New Orleans, but it was still hammered. Ingalls shipyard, for example, was devastated. Much of the city is back on its feet, but there are still miles and miles to go, as you will see in this first photo album. I think it's important that we know what the situation is from as many sources as possible, including my own.

So study these photos under "Mac's Slide Show", if you will, at: http://www.kodakgallery.com/ShareLandingSignin.jsp?Uc=q749j48.u5o9fv8&Uy=38o9ue&Upost_signin=Slideshow.jsp%3Fmode%3Dfromshare&Ux=0. I'll post more soon. Here's several more from this album now.
