Gustav Terrorizes Gulf Coast on Hurricane Katrina Day

Gustav shows up on the same day we're supposed to remember Katrina. Now that's some bad mojo.

"Episcopal Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori had also called on the denomination’s churches to observe Katrina Remembrance Day. "Katrina Remembrance Sunday is a way of remembering, of heralding the vast relief work that has gone on, and of reminding that there is still work to be done," explained Neva Rae Fox, the Episcopal Church's program officer for public affairs. Bishop Charles E. Jenkins of the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana noted that the church’s relief work has shifted from recovery to now including redevelopment and biblical justice."

“The needs continue [to be] great and the resources are dwindling,” he said.
