All You Need To Know About New Orleans

August 27, 2012

She is one of the greatest American cities, leave alone a world treasure. If the Dutch have enough technological capability and national pride to save a large portion of their country that is below sea level from being drowned or chiseled away by the North Sea each year, we had better find within our patriotic American selves a way how. If our response to any and all tropical weather events is pointing at negative elevation numbers with a smug “You can’t fool Mother Nature,” please let’s go live in caves without clothing, electricity, running water and temperature control. Obviously we have successfully averted Nature’s gaze or we would never have left those hovels to some day reach deep into our earth for fuel or to put a man on the moon.

More than Hurricane Isaac, I want the media to leave New Orleans the hell alone. You didn’t help seven years ago, you’re not helping today.

    That phrase really does suck.

    No first aid kits (disinfectant,etc.) or meds (anti-biotics) in that cave either, unless they’re Roquefort caves. Disasters such as earthquakes and flooding can happen anywhere at anytime. Sadly, apres-Sandy, some may be having an attitude adjustment regarding their views of those who live on the Gulf Coat. I survived Hurricane Ike in Galveston, and faced questions of why I would live on an island vulnerable to hurricanes. Um, because I had a job there? Friends? A life? It was home for 23 years? Details like that.

    Thanks for your blog posts.
