Democrats don't complain that the stimulus forgets Gulf Coast

I think it's a little hypocritical that the same voices that used Katrina to blast Bush at every opportune moment are not clamoring to help us now. Am I wrong?

Good call DNR!

The LA Department of Natural Resources has drafted a regulation that will require beneficial use of dredged material. This means that when companies want to do a project in the coastal zone- assuming this regulation goes into effect- they will have to use the marsh mud they dig up in a way that helps with coastal protection and restoration!

Now if only the Corps of Engineers will follow suit, we'll really be getting somewhere!

CSE this Friday at 7 in NOLA!

Come to the Dragon's Den- on Esplanade by Frenchman- this Friday at 7. The Contemporary String Ensemble is putting on a free show (donations accepted) featuring compositions by several composers here in LA- including a composition by my good friend Ronaldo Cadeu. The below video features him performing a very creative solo piece of his which I love called "Orange Things Inside My Head."

Nah-don't go to the Friday night parade. Save your strength for Endymion and enjoy a different kind of cultural experience!
