Snapshots from The Abandoned City:"Everybody is in need. Everybody has just been wiped out."

The headline on today's Times-Picayune, from which many of these snapshots come, is "Hitting Bottom."

I look forward to the day when New Orleans is back on it's feet and thriving and jiving -- and I'm here reading the lyrics to "New Orleans Wins the War."

Thanks Gerard.

Thank you Gerard.

"Thank you" seems so inadequate. Makes me ashamed of the many times I've griped about nor'easters. Will head down to the local ARC chapter house tomorrow to donate blood as well as cash. God bless you.
