Head down to the Huntington Beach Peir on Wednesday at 5 p.m. to mark the one-year anniversary of Katrina, there will be a New Orleans-style jazz funeral procession down Pacific Coast Highway with some of Orange CountyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s and Los AngelesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ finest musicians.
The empty coffins will follow the music, and there will be political look-alikes.
Dress as festively as possible, and be ready to dance, possibly throw beads, and maybe youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be asked to be a pallbearer.
Bring a couple of signs if you can. Some suggested texts for signs:
Heckuva job, Bushie!
(no text, but blow up dramatic photos of the devastation and tape to sign — $5 at Kinko’s)
1100+ Dead while Bush’s FEMA slept
Where was the Louisiana National Guard? Oh yeah.
Keep Halliburton out of the Gulf Coast!
Where has the $62 billion gone?
No more NO-BID contracts!
“George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” –Kanye West
Can we afford another Katrina? Drive out the GOP!
etc. etc, think up your own signs!
Please forward this event info to your friends, and invite everyone you know. There will probably be television cameras.
