L.A. Times had an interesting story about a guy, Paul Harris, who rode out Katrina in the Superdome.
Harris, a former San Diego County probation officer on vacation in the Big Easy when the storm hit on Aug. 29, 2005, has wondered what happened to the people with whom he spent the most intense days of his life. He’s been in e-mail contact with several and has flown to New Orleans a few times to watch the progress of the Superdome’s $320-million renovation.
On Sunday, Katrina’s fifth anniversary, Harris organized a reunion of Superdome survivors. He printed up flyers, advertised it on the local paper’s events calendar, flagged it on his own website. He arrived shortly before noon, waiting expectantly and a little nervously.
No one came.
