Today's Doonesbury, for those who can let themselves find any kind of humor in this tragedy. Save the lectures, this is meant 100% tongue in cheek.

      I have and will live with my memories of what was................... I'm not going back.


      I'm sorry to say that I'm with you. The New Orleans of my childhood summers was the streetcorner musicians; streetcorner domino & chess games; snow cones; wonderful music & cooking odors wafting out of bars I was too young to enter; watching the tourists and listening to all the odd accents and languages. I believe the New Orleans that is left will be a playground intended only for the wealthy. The heavy air that smelled of gumbo and swampwater now smells like sewage & dead bodies. The neighborhoods that housed the "service workers", the people that made the New Orleans of Mardi Gras possible, are now empty and the people themselves have for the most part moved on. We all mourn the loss of that way of life, as well as the loss of life itself. Our New Orleans is gone, and all the money in the government will not bring her back.
