Thoughts on Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and having a brand new baby boy

Another interesting email
This goes back to my dilemma about getting something and giving by visiting and my post about hiding the warts. But this group wants to come down and help (I got it from a Tulane Alum, so...). I wish I had the money, but I will be around in March. Keep up the good fight. One at a time, we will get through this.
I grew up in Metairie, LA and lived in actual New Orleans for 12 years. The day that I turned 30, I moved to New Jersey and then to Easton, PA 4 years ago. As luck would have it, I was in New Orleans when Katrina approached and evacuated to Jackson, MS. Other than that, I am a Latin and history teacher at a small, independent school in NJ. I miss New Orleans a lot, think about it all the time, and try to go there whenever the work schedule allows.
