Back after yet another week off. We gotta quit meeting this infrequently. It’s hard when everybody has stuff to do. Varg is still busy, actually. Thankfully our good friendValerie McGinleyis here to sit in. And hey she’s here to help us break in the Ira Wray Soundboard Presented By We Met In the Air. (IWSPBWMITA… or something.. We’re working on it) Anyway, how do we sound?
Is the proliferation of highly individualized donation streams helping, hindering, or “disrupting” recovery efforts? What are the pros and cons ofthe GoFundMe disaster response?
Is Louisiana so used to disaster recovery now that we might actually be learning to do it better? Do we know what to do withFederal aid money wants it starts flowing? Do we have the political muscle necessary to start it flowing?
Alli is about to go on a trip up to Cape Cod. Val just got back from a trip up to Cape Cod. They talk about the joys of escaping the butt end of the New Orleans summer. Jeff went to the Saints pre-season home opener and didn’t much care for the big video screens. Jeff and Alli look forward to football season. Val looks forward to the Louisiana guns and ammo tax holliday.
And that’ll do it for this week. Thanks again for listening.
