Heckuva Job, Mappie: Google Disappears Post-Katrina Map Pix

Heckuva Job! - WonketteThere are now two places on Earth where New Orleans isn't a half-abandoned wasteland: Micheal "Brownie" Brown's mind and Google Maps.


Inexplicably, the satellite maps the world has come to depend upon were replaced with pre-Katrina maps for the storm-wrecked Gulf Coast.

After Katrina, Google's satellite images were in high demand among exiles and hurricane victims anxious to see if their homes were flooded or damaged by the storm. Pete Gerica, a fisherman who lives in eastern New Orleans, said he printed pictures of his waterside homestead from Google to use in his arguments with insurance adjusters.
Ohhhhh. Well, who would benefit from getting rid of those pictures?

Seattle People, looking spunky. We hate spunky.

It is Friday, Yr Wonkette's back end (that's website talk) has been cranky all afternoon like a digital babby that needs a nap, and we are all stuck in the stupidest timeline.

And if you're in Eastern Washington or its environs, you can come out to meet Yr Editrix, Yr Shypixel, and Yr one day Benevolent Monarch Donna Rose come this Sunday in the Evergreen State's second-largest city, Spokane!
