Still trying to speak with one voice

Turns out the various email addresses the Coast Guard had for Katrina information was too much.
A. FOR HURRICANE KATRINA SEARCH AND RESCUE - IN ORDER TO ASSIST THE UNITED STATES COAST GUARD IN HURRICANE KATRINA SEARCH ANDRESCUE EFFORTS, SUBMIT A MISSING/STRANDED PERSON REQUEST AT HOMEPORT
B. FOR HURRICANE KATRINA MEDIA - FOR NEWS ABOUT HURRICANEKATRINA VISIT USCG STORM WATCH.
C. THE HURRICANE KATRINA OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT WEBSITE FOR PUBLICINFORMATION ON FINDING LOVED ONES, WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE A VICTIM,HOW TO HELP VICTIMS, OR DISASTER CLEANUP AND AGENCY RESOURCES,VISIT FIRSTGOV.GOV HERE.
Guess that was too difficult for Joe Citizen to comprehend.

read more of this musing.))
