Thoughts on Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and having a brand new baby boy
Saturday, February 17, 2007
Clearly, something has to change. Eugene Treg, a bad guy with a criminal record, has been set free because of a delay in getting paperwork and evidence together. I wonder how many crimes in New Orleans are committed by the same few people. My bet is that a large portion of them. Remember "B-Stupid." He's still in prison without a trial and has been let go at least two other times. That's at least two people in New Orleans who would still be alive and three in Houston that he killed since Katrina. Who knows what Eugene Treg has done.
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.
