The Photog Roman Cho, from Southern Calif, made his choices, but what surprised me was the people, willing to take a moment, tell their stories.

I took a lot of photos of my BIL's place, only simple cropping, culling.. But I wasn't going to publish.. Nor spend the effort Roman did interviewing others.. Just driving into the area once they allowed us close relatives in, was enough to sicken anyone..

I couldn't read 'em all, too soon, too devastating... Friends, relatives, even my cardiologist lost their homes... Many won't rebuild, like my BIL, at 70, it will be a decade or more before anything approaching normal returns to the area, so they moved on, bought a home, in another town, away from the scene. Eventually, they'll sell they lot, let someone else deal with the bureaucracy...
