Just flipped around the cable channels, and it’s hard to get a clear picture of what’s going on in New Orleans. On the one hand, it sounds as though Gustav had weakened considerably by the time it hit land. On the other, there are reports of levees and canals overflowing.

Looks like NOLA.com is the place to be, just as it was three years ago.

I’m off to Canobie Lake Park with the official Media Nation daughter and her friend. So I won’t be responding until later.

Good luck and best wishes to the people of New Orleans.
