no jokes about katrina and the waves, promise. "walking on sunshine" is a fantastic song though.
it's nice to have national attention on our gret stet because of the hurricane. it's great fear news. i'm in lafayette, which is 150 miles-ish west of new orleans, and people have just completely razed grocery stores even though it's going to be tantamount to a bad thunderstorm for us.
my theory is that people here LOVE IT, at least latently. life is pretty boring for most, so when we get the occasional natural disaster or terrorist attack it gives us real-life entertainment. and war? jesus, it's like a fucking video game. especially for those with bloodlust who won't risk their own. no news like bad news, as always.
