Life Amidst the Ruins

FROM THE AMAZING PHOTOPAGES @ "Outpost Crystal" by Sigmund Solares-- Katrina Aftermath - Stench, Stragglers, and Stagnant Water.

"This girl was very excited about her teddy bear. She wanted to show it to everyone. To the left is investment banker Michael Hammer of Pontchatrain Capital. He spent the past week getting the police anything that they wanted according to police sources. He saw the girl and her family walking the wrong way trying to evacuate. They said they had been walking around for hours. So he drove them to the evacuation point. The little girl was very appreciative and thanked him for the ride."

"Not leaving."

"I mean it."

This comment is about the whole blog. I enjoy your writing tremendously. I spent more time here every day than on WSJ and San Francisco Chronicle and ESPN combined. The subtle humor and sarcasm latent in your writing are amazing.
