To the Editor: My name is Dawn Ofodile, and I worked at Gambit Weekly until Hurricane Katrina hit. I want to thank AAN for your efforts on our behalf — hosting the online forum for Gambit staff and your very generous monetary contributions.
In the first weeks after the hurricane, I traveled from Texas to Georgia and was happily surprised to find Michael T(isserand)’s first article in Atlanta’s Creative Loafing. I have now (temporarily) settled in Norman, Oklahoma and was touched to see the relief fund ad in the Oklahoma Gazette.
I don’t think any of us expected such an outpouring from our sister papers, but it is a wonderful comfort in a trying time.
Thank you again.
