In the midst of Mardi Gras coverage, you might need reminding of the devastation that Katrina left in New Orleans. Take a look at this amazing tale, complete with pictures, of a Chicago man, Ned, and his friend Brian "Gordo" Gordon, who drove into New Orleans after Katrina to save Gordo's cats Franks and Beans. This morning, there are reports that many aid groups are running out of Katrina relief funds. Please give where you can. [Thanks, Julia!]
