  • PPG: What do you hear?

    Are you still in Chicago? What do you hear about your living accomodations in NO? How about your firm? Can you still work? Are you being given any idea as to when you might return to NO?

    Well last I heard the uptown area where I live was finally going to flood, and armed gangs were headed up St. Charles for looting. Probably slightly alarmist, but you never know.

    I can't reach anybody from New Orleans, and my work server is down. They took it offline on Saturday. It finally occurred to me today to call the Houston and Jackson offices to see if anything was being coordinated. I will most likely be working in Jackson for sometime, while the family hunkers down in Missouri.

    I will probably know more today, work-wise, as the server is in transit to Houston. I hope to be able to go back into NOLA sometime next week and secure the house. Then head back out.

    Other than that, I just watch the live stream from www.wwltv.com.
    From this day forward, I no longer shall tinker with the machinery of death.

    For more than 20 years I have endeavored-indeed, I have struggled-along with a majority of this Court, to develop procedural & substantive rules that would lend more than the mere appearance of fairness to the death penalty endeavor.


    I feel morally and intellectually obligated simply to concede that the death penalty experiment has failed.

    The path the Court has chosen lessens us all. I dissent.

      I've been trying to deal with people in state government in Jackson today, and they are pretty overwhelmed. Still a lot of power outages in the city, and phone service is sporadic at best.

      Sorry to hear about your abode. Were you able to get any personal effects out?

      It's amazing the things that keep popping into my head with regard to how this disrupts life. I wonder how the judicial system in that area adjusts? What about trials that were going on?

      Man, this is terrible. Keep us posted, and keep the faith.

        They just opened the airport for humanitarian flights only. No structural damage to the airport.

            good luck w/ everything ppg.
            You're being fucking dramatic. You own a TV and an air mattress. That's not exactly what I'd call "a lot to lose."

              Well American Airlines has revised their return policy once again, and we are now no longer required to book a return flight landing in New Orleans by September 3rd.

              I'm overcome with their generosity. You'll have to give me a minute.

                PPG, if you need a place to stay, there's probably not anybody in Bobb-McCulloch right now...

                  I was a Sargent man myself. At least until, I got kicked out, and then banned from Bobb-McCulloch.

                  Isolated incidents of course.

                  I was on-campus just the other day. Took the kids out to the Lake.

                  GO CATS!

                    I have a friend at Touro, who was able to get out yesterday and survey the damage. He went to my house on Prytania near Washington and said that there were fallen trees, and power lines. No flooding appeared to be present. Some shutters had blown off the house, but windows and doors seemed to be intact. He said the houses looked to be in pretty good shape all along Prytanina, from Louisiana to Washington. Its hard to get a line out, from down there, so it may be a while before there is any more info, but I'll post it here if I hear of anything.
                    My brother just left the superdome and called me from my house near Tipitinas (600 block Jena St) There is no water there and my house is fine, except the backyard! He needs a ride out to anywhere that has a bus station if anyone is still in NOLA & leaving. His name is Aaron 504-897-2315.His reports of the superdome was 'pure hell'. Good luck everyone, if you're still in NOLA, please help those you can.
                    I got this info. from someone in my neighborhood, for those of you who are asking about Coliseum/Napoleon and Napoleon/St. Charles. I live on Chestnut and General Taylor.

                    "Had contact this morning with Chestnut St. (3700 block). There is no flooding, but many trees down and the power is out. AtTheCondos,the Chestnut fence is upright as are the magnolias on Chestnut and Gen. Taylor. Some reports of looting in other parts of the city but quiet uptown. Water service stayed on. "
                    These are all around where we live, so we shall see.

                      SueUptown: I am serious, I want to go back to New Orleans now and try to help. I am not afraid of dying in that cause, and I am a licensed and trained gunholder. Apparently, our government is unable to keep the city under control. Do you know a way into Uptown from the West?
                      Lazy?

                        Where are you hanging out now PPG? Have you heard anything more about your house, work, etc? I know you are consumed with more pressing issues, but we missed your participation in the contest this week. Hope things are going okay for you.
