"Splinters & Sand: Rebuilding our memories. Rebuilding the Jersey Shore." A Ledger Live Special Report - In a tour of the Hurricane Sandy ravaged Jersey Shore in the weeks after the storm, longtime reporter and shore resident, Brian Donohue, explores the emotional attachment people have to the Jersey Shore and what makes it so broad and deep. In conversations with boardwalk business owners, homeowners and visits to emotionally significant shore spots from his own life, he looks for clues as to how the shore might be rebuilt after the storm. Donohue makes the case that the emotional and cultural value is a powerful and legitimate factor that needs to be considered as the shore is rebuilt. "Splinters & Sand" is an extended mini-documentary length episode of the Ledger Live video webcast. (Video by Brian Donohue and Bumper DeJesus)
