Hot Documentary Tuesday Night and Ted Koppel

Frontline has produced a documentary on the damage and response of Hurrican Katrina. Frontline makes the best documentaries.

The Storm
coming Nov. 22, 2005 at 9pm (check local listings)

(60 minutes) In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, FRONTLINE will produce a documentary special that investigates the political storm surrounding the devastation of America's Gulf Coast. Veteran FRONTLINE producer/reporter Martin Smith will lead a team to ask hard questions about the decisions leading up to the disaster and beyond.

Also- Ted Koppel is hosting his final episode of Nightline on Tuesday night. It looks like it will be an evening of news for me. I think I may host a party upstairs in my joint to watch his final episode. I remember the Iran hostage crisis as a budding street urchin. I wasn't exactly sure what was going on, but I started to understand young. I remember Mayor Byrne being elected. That was a big deal. She moved into the projects. I wasn't exactly sure what that meant either, but I remember that. I remember quite a few things from when I was a kid.

addendum: I just looked up and the History Channel was showing Mayor Byrne and when she ran for mayor in 79. There was a huge snowstorm, I remember this, and there was a big stink that the streets didn't get plowed. I remember everyone bitching that Mayor Daley would have gotten the streets plowed. People were pissed.
