Notes from Biloxi, Pt. V...

From Librarian Del Hamilton:
"On CNN last night, Anderson Cooper and John Grisham were being given a tour of the Biloxi library. My favorite line was that when John walked in the door he looked down and there was his book The Street Lawyer in the mud and he said "Guess I am bottom shelf". Anyway John Grisham has started his own disaster relief fund with $5 million of his own money and has almost doubled it. You can read about it here...

John Grisham is a Mississippi author and Anderson Cooper's father Wyatt was from Mississippi. They also toured Mary Mahoney's restaurant (circa 1737) which is featured in a couple of Grisham's books. The damage there was significant but the building stood firm."
