Skip to comments.PROPOSAL: A Katrina collaborative timeline
Posted on 09/14/2005 6:38:08 PM PDT by George Smiley
Here's what I'm suggesting:
There appears to be a need for a definitive timeline with respect to Katrina and who did and said what when.
Things get particularly confusing because of the short timeframe referenced in most newspaper and magazine articles- someone pointed out to me that an article said "last Friday", and two Fridays had passed since the beginning of events, so the reference became vague.
And, given the number of Freepers, if a bunch of us pitch in and "walk back the cat" so to speak, a timeline ought to be constructable in relatively short order.
The only way to make this collaborative effort semi-organized would be to open a thread for each day beginning, say, with the time Katrina approached the Florida Coast. (If anyone feels otherwise, I'm not trying to run this, just suggesting.)
As people located news items for a given day, they could post an excerpt in that day's thread along with a link to the original source URL.
When things seem complete, they could then be compiled.
And of course, we'll ask permission from JimRob.
What say you?
Naaaah, let's wait to hear Michael Moore's version of events....
Don't know if this helps.
Have any of you heard about the ad in the NYT from Kuwait?
It is AWESOME- but I can't find anything on the web about it at all.....
Put this in:
Amid Katrina Chaos, Congressman William Jefferson Used National Guard to Visit Home. (VIDEO)
Here is what I have collected so far - hope it helps.

I'm in!!!! I do not mind doing this in spreadsheet form, but would need help.
If you pick out who, what, when and where, I can do the spread sheet, or vis versa.
All data is meaningless if the time the data occurred is not accurately known. Gathering the event data is pointless if the time is not also recorded.
Still waiting for your response, please!!!!!
Websearch on "katrina" and "timeline".
There are several out there.
