Mr. Rollins, you are an amazingly unsung personality in our country. From an active soldier, thank you for what you do.

I can't believe we tolerated these hate-filled people (Bush and company) for so long....Thank heavens Obama won, if he didn't I would have smelled a rat and right now I'd be marching around my fair city with a torch and pitchfork......I wasn't going to take one more day of this crap.

Now the work begins....I (and the rest of my family) are ready to help Obama get things back on track. We're looking forward to it...and that's the key, we're moving FORWARD--not slipping further down into the hole. I don't delude myself that it will be easy, but if we all work together we can have the kind of Country we want. We are responsible.....the President isn't the boss, we are.....and we need to be prepared to tell him what we need--then back it up with putting in the work.

As always, I love you Henry.....

My first experience with Henry Rollins was when he was a musical guest on Saturday Night Live in the early 90s and I was probably 10 years old. I remember being crap-my-pants scared by him. Keep up the good work Henry!

Being from New Orleans, I know what Henry is talking about. it's a long way from the Old New Orleans, probably will never be close to whole again. I seriously doubt it. Protecting the marshes from the salt water intrusion is vital. Look at any map, all of that water around N.O. is salty,salty enough to kill plants,trees,and marsh. Without that marsh as a buffer the city and it's surroundings will always be extremely vulnerable. Forget the busted levees, so much more damage was done by water racing up the M.R.G.O.,overflowing Lake Ponchatrain ,etc, The water that popped the levees came up through there,the MRGO. We have to recreate marsh land where we can in order to stop the erosion and provide a buffer. I hope that it's not too late, it will take serious effort and serious funding to prevent another catastrophe. I remember growing up, I spent so much time in the waters around N.O. fishing. There used to be islands and marsh everywhere, now on the Eastern side of the city it's all open water down to the Gulf.

Way to go Henry Rollins! I hope that this program will air over and over again so that many people will get a chance to see it. New Orleans deserves our attention and needs our help!

Nice piece Henry. Never get tired of hearing about New Orleans. The more attention, the better.

Hank,
I've been a fan of yours since I was kid in Manhattan Beach and you started fronting for Black Flag. You do good work and are an important voice.
Keep plugging away.

Come back to Santa Cruz soon. My son and I caught your spoken word show a few years ago.....we still laugh at your impersonation of William Shatner.

Thank you for this Henry. My sister-in-law is just now moving out of her FEMA trailer and into her home. From contractors graft to the slow Road Home, recovery has moved slowly but it's finally moving.

Whats happening, Henry. I caught you and your old band Black Flag here in Reno at the skating rink many years ago. It was a great show. Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie. I can still listen to that song all day long. Good to see you here.

Fantastic Henry. You are the right voice for America and I look forward to all of your thoughts in this Obama generation to continue to enlighten and inspire. New Orleans has been long out of the news and I'm sure I'll be heartbroken when I watch your show and the current state of the Crescent City. It's been years since I've been there, but I hear you when you say it is a culturally rich place.

I look forward to more of your IFC show and again, keep speaking up for the rest of America. We can change! I'll tune in Friday night.

Thanks Henry. I've seen your spoken word tour twice and it's always an eye opener. I really hope that people pay attention. This was just ONE of the disasters that the Bush administration thought would just go away. I honestly think they thought "oh well, people who lived there will just stay where they were dropped and we'll call it good". I truly understand how people feel about where they are from and the people of New Orleans deserve to have their city rebuilt and their culture rejuvenated. Notice how we don't hear about Houston not receiving what they need. Could that possibly have a connection with big oil?? I certainly hope that President Obama takes a look at the situation there and applies common sense to help the people. I honestly think that the Bush Administration should have to live out their remaining days in office doing it from FEMA trailers in the lower 9th ward!
