  • Paul George on Miami, Cuba and the lingering Cold War:"It absolutely is a throwback. Cuban exiles are still worried about the Castro issue, and they hinge everything around that issue, the existence of Castro. But the rest of the country has long forgotten that this Cold War period ever happened." - Monterey Herald, 2-12-06
  • Douglas Brinkley on New Orleans:"The Lower Ninth Ward is kind of the heart and soul of the African-American experience in New Orleans, and what's New Orleans without the African-American experience? It would be a big statement if we could save the Lower Ninth Ward, and I think some of their cultural photography could be helpful toward that end." - NYT, 2-9-06
