    Has anyone heard from the folks at Trinity? I understand they are located near the dike, which in and of itself isn't good news considering the damage Katrina caused.

    From the info on their web site it looked like they were located on the Mississippi side of New Orleans, not on Pontchatrian, where the levee is leaking. But man, doesn't look like any of the businesses there will be up and running anytime soon! :(

    This has been on my mind for the past three days. I tried calling Trinity, but the lines are down. I tried reaching their ad agency as well, but no answer. It's ironic you posted this message, as I was just about to do the same.

    I'm taking off for a couple of days to work with the Red Cross. I'd like to ask our regular members to keep an eye on the site, keep the kids in line and say a prayer for our friends in the gulf coast region.

    If you are so inclined, here is a link to the Hurricane Katrina - Red Cross online donation form...

We would like our vendors to contact us there with any questions they may have with regards to ongoing and future projects.”
