Thoughts on Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and having a brand new baby boy
Saturday, April 28, 2007
I am disappointed at the JazzFest Website. I want to print the food page, but it keeps coming up in a scrollable interior window. Dammit. Well, I know I am having cochon de lait, crawfish bread, and crawfish beignets. Besides that, who knows?
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.
