Watching this on TV, the water was rising in time with the chaos…I, like
everyone, was trying to comprehend the situation, and I felt the need to do
something, but what? After 5 hours of researching, my publicist called and said,
"I've talked to some producers at the Oprah Show and
they are looking for people who want to get 'down and dirty.'" The next morning
I was on a plane with a camera and sound crew on our way from Burbank to Baton
The plan was not defined, but the ball was rolling…We were headed
to the Gulf Coast.
