If you are a Diabolos player in one of the states affected by Hurricane Katrina or know of a Diabolos player affected by that storm, please take a moment to post an update about yourself and/or them. I'd like to know how you or they are doing.

I just realized Megatron is from Alabama, and I haven't seen him post in awhile.

/pray

Busa and Blue are ok? Thats a relief! Well, New Orleans is my hometown and all my family still lives there. They're living here for a while, as their houses are ok but the status of New Orleans right now well..isn't. A few people I do know though in New Orleans have lost everything including their way of life. Pray for 'em please.

My heart goes out to all the victims of the Hurricaine.

I have spent many hours watching, instead of sleeping or playing the game, the updates and programs.

I hope that the accusations about the treatment of blacks is not true and that we did not rescue the rich and white first.

I hope that the 5 black boys that were shot and killed, were not innocent victims of fear, but rather hardened criminals. Nothing less would justify their deaths.

I hope that those people that were told to leave the convention center and go elsewhere, found someplace that took care of them.

And I pray for the two infants that starved to death there, while waiting. And the old people that died in their wheelchairs waiting for help.

And to the 10/20 victims in the care center who passed away. I hope they had a prayer and not a curse on their lips when they died.

To the children and women that were raped, I hope they don't lose faith in all mankind, but understand that this storm brought out the best and worst in people.

To the caregivers and rescuers, I hope that you can sleep at night after what you've witnesseed. I pray you have loved one's to go home to and cherish.

To the man they interviewed who suddenly broke down because he saw dead bodies floating by, I hope that you can find solice that these souls moved on, long before their bodies reached the spot where you viewed them. And yes, it was horific.

To the city government: Please make a policy whereby all salable goods become city property and can be distributed for free to neighborhoods, so that people don't have to feel guilty that they stole diapers and water so that their young one's may live.
So that they don't get desperate enough to steal guns to protect themselves. So that they don't have to steal cars and gas.

To the looters who stole tv's and computers: wtf where you thinking? You can't eat or drink those things and there is no fukin electricity anywhere. Morons. You made it look bad for everyone.

To the 4 year old boy found wondering around who told rescuers that "my momma is dead. someone pushed her in the water." I hope you find a good home and can somehow reconcile that memory with more happier one's.

To Red Cross: wtf were you thinking when you turned people away at the dome in Texas because they didn't have a 'reservation'? Idiots! Or the buss load of people who showed up recently rescued from their homes, because they too weren't part of the official convoy? Morons! Heartless, thoughtless, stupid people. You infuriated me at 5am in the morning when I couldn't call you and bitch directly. You'll never get another cent from me.

To Pres. Bush: sorry to disturb your vacation, but your people need you. Now get your butt back in gear and do something besides touting guns soilders.

Howdy all. So you Hurricane "Vicious Bitch" has delightfully relocated me out of Louisiana. I began my journey around mid-day sunday when my buddy and I ran for out lives lol and drove 18 hours through mind-warping traffic all the way to Nashville. I spent 2 days there liviing where I met up with a formor Diabolos member Kristasee. I went to the Jack Daniels distillery.... woot!!!!!!!!!!!!I stayed with Kris' aunt for two days in Franklin Tenn then lived at the down town Hilton for two days.

I enjoyed the bars and strip clubs of nashville before riding on to memphis. There my bub re-united with his girlfriend and I met up with my Ex and we split up for the night. Memphis has a wanna-be Bourbon Street called Beale st so it was mildly like home but im sorry bars closing before 2am is just {Too weak} to me.

After that night my bud and I rode out to Pine Bluff Arkansas for the night where we met another friend refugee from home. then I rode on like a wandering cowboy to houston to finally get my friend to his dad.

And currently I am staying in a trailer park in Tyler Texas >.<;

Im gonna go to Colorado tomorrow to live with and uncle but I seam to be at a crossroads in life.

I could either wait for home to be habitable and go back, move to california, or move to boston and never look back basically.

Well time for a nap...ive been driving over 2200 miles with weak thanks to this damn storm.

Good luck Diabolos and especially to my Beloved wanderers I miss you all dearly.

Update time: Living in a trailer in Tyler Texas with dial up on my cousin's computer.

I think im going back to help with the clean up process in Metairie but I hope to be moving to Boston in the next couple of weeks.

I need a change of pace for awhile.

Well that's all for now

Some of my family lives in Tyler, TX, Busa. Or at least very near there. Talk about some rednecks, man. =) Love 'em though. haha I'm just hoping that they've left for this next hurricane...

Glad to hear that you're alright, though. =) You may have lost a lot, but you still have your life. And so many people are willing to help out right now.

I decided to head out of New Orleans and head to Irvine, California for a few classes at UCI. Update: Busa is in New Orleans helping clean up, but will not go to Boston. Blueice is no longer in New Orleans, but in Louisiana. Skeith and Worldtraveler when to Houston after Katrina, but had to flee again cause of Rita. Kristasee is attending Vanderbuilt for a semester. I think that is about it. I hope to come home in december or january, but I don't have a house so idk where I will stay.
