Wow. The damage from Hurricane Katrina is absolutely horrible. Eighty percent of the area is under water. I was on the Pub at 2Ps and there was this thread about one of the Pubsters in Biloxi....someone contacted her mother and found out that her family lost everything and are now stranded in their car. Wow. That is just one story. There are so many others. I can only imaagine. It's terrible what mother nature can do. I don't know what else to say. My heart goes out to those people who were affected.
In other news -
Started school yesterday. Tried to add a class today, but no luck. I may end up taking a math class at another community college around here, they start next week....we'll see how it goes. So far, I've had my bio lab and class. My teacher is sort of weird. Not a big fan of science/math classes.
First day of newspaper class tomorrow...whoever came up with the production schedule for this semester is crazy. First day of school was yesterday, first day of class tomorrow, and then the first issue of the paper comes out Thursday! Whoa. My page is going to just be a huge "voices" thing - you know, those things where we go around campus and ask people to answer a question.
Spotlight magazines came out...the printing was kind of crappy. The cover image looks faded, and therefore tacky. Oh well. You can see here --

my article -
Yeah, it figures that I'd write something baseball/Dodgers-related, right?
I need a working scanner. Sorry about the quality of the image, I know it's not great.
While distributing the magazines yesterday, I was playing with Steve (our asst. photo editor)'s cool SLR camera. I took a cool picture of one of the school buildings, I'll see if he'll ever send it to me...Those things are SO cool but a. they're expensive, b. they're big and heavy (this is why I love my tiny SD 400), and c. they're hard to figure out. Still, I lust over one.
