I Will Not Defame New Orleans.


I woke up at my idyllic lakehouse, my childhood Mecca, my adult sanity refuge, looked around the familiar room with an air of peace that I can only find here, and for a full two minutes, thought, "Oh wow. What an incredibly epic, Irwin Allenesque nightmare that was!"

For a full two minutes, I knew it was all imaginary.

For two minutes, I had a life again.
I Will Not Defame New Orleans.


I realize that the priorities are the broken levee and the stranded and sick people in New Orleans, but has anyone heard anything official (read: I'm not interested in any more CNN hyped-up bullshit) about stranded pets in homes?

i.e. How can I get into New Orleans to get my kitties out?
