"I love the man that can smile in trouble, that
can gather strength
from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis
the business
of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is
firm, and whose
conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his
principles unto
death." ---Thomas Paine

by Mark Tapscott (9/3)

Katrina was barely beyond New Orleans and the Mississippi coast when
