Thoughts on Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and having a brand new baby boy
Tuesday, December 12, 2006
I know the FBI is probably already working on this, but I keep reading about "Dollar Bill" Jefferson, his family, and his network of cronies. While he may be above the nonsense, I doubt it. I am not sure that Carter is absolved in this matter either. There will be flowcharts, Venn diagrams, names, dates, and other important stuff. How in the hell did he get re-elected? I hope he gets indicted just on appearance. At least until I get this information together. Then I hope he gets indicted on facts.
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.
