Dear Readers,
We have been asked by our superiors to remove the last two photographs posted to this blog and instead of editing out portions of my last post that some readers could find offensive, it has been removed in its entirety.
I have one thing to add here that Mike and I have not made sufficiently clear: Nothing shown or expressed on this blog is directly or indirectly affiliated with, linked to, as a result of or in league with the views, opinions or beliefs of the Sun Herald or any of its corporate affiliates.
Again, The Sun Herald and its corporate affiliates do not support, agree with or condone any commentary, opinion or even reporting written into or expressed on this blog.

I am humbled by the spirit of the people of south Mississippi and congratulate the Sun Herald staff for its efforts after Hurricane Katrina, which have recently been justly recognized.

I will not be going ahead with the Biloxi Banter blog.
I will repeat one thing I wrote earlier:
Our loyal readers have made this worth it. Thank you profoundly for reading.

Our Dance with Katrina is done.

I saw it when it hit the wire and immediately thought of you two. Your names weren't mentioned, but we all know.

Congratulations. Not bad (for a daily. [wink wink]). LOL Seriously, you both deserve it.

I don't comment much, but I visit often. I'll add the biloxibanter to my bloglines as well.

Congratulations to both of you and everyone at the Sun-Herald. This award was so well deserved.

I honestly do not know what I would have done without the Sun-Herald's coverage in the days and weeks after Katrina, so I agree completely that the paper provided a true public service in a time of great need.

Up here in Minnesota, many of us have lost interest with the travesty that Katrina brought. I kept reading not only because the South is in my heart, but also because I felt I grew to know you guys personally as I read your struggles, accomplishments, and pursuits of the real stories on the coast. I thank you both from the bottom of my heart for providing us a peek into your lives.

And a major congratulations! You two deserve it immensely!

Congrats to the paper my Grandfather lovingly called "The Hometown Astonisher". You two, and who was the other fellow that had a blog going during and after the storm? Wasn't he a sports writer? Anyway...you've helped me keep in touch with my beautiful home...Where will I turn now for news.....But I understand.

Good work guys! Good work!

I have been reading the blog and your articles since the very beginning, and its funny, I was wondering about a pulitzer for the two of you back in November. Congratulations to you both, and a very simple thank you for the wonderful, heartfelt, incredibly insightful running commentary, updates, rants, raves,thoughts, and ideas that provided a totally different view of the disaster .... I'll miss my daily "stop by".

Celebrate hardily !!!!!

I don't know if you two will see this comment, but thank you both for your wonderful work for the Sun Herald and here on this blog. I feel as though I know you both, and I wish you the very best in your future. Waveland, and the other towns of the coast, are still often in our thoughts. Be blessed.

Katrina victims of Mississippi River Gulf Outlet (MRGO) flooding may be owed compensation from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers over its failure to appropriately maintain the MRGO. If you are one of the thousands of Louisiana residents whose property was located in the following Louisiana zip codes: 70129, 70117, 70092, 70085, 70075, 70043, and 70032, and you filed SF Form 95 claims with the Army Corps of Engineers on or before August 29, 2007, this site has lots of valuable information: http://www.yourlawyer.com/topics/overview/MRGO-Flood-Lawsuit
