Immigrant students who are victims of Katrina are afraid they'll be deported Their visas are tied to the schools they attend. But the schools they were attending are not open. What to do? Tulane had a large number of students from Bangladesh, as well as from India and Pakistan.

Story about LA's K-town where Latinos are learning Korean, Koreans are learning Spanish, and no one seems to have much use for English. Reminds me of my grandparents, who owned a store in El Paso, TX for thirty-something years. While my grandpa is fluent in Canto, English, and Spanish, to this day my grandma is better at speaking Spanish than English. Must have been a pretty shocking sight for some folks to see here -- this little round Chinese lady cussing like crazy in Spanish.

The DC APA film fest begins October 6th.
