  • Back to the City Care Forgot

    QUOTE
    Mayor Ray Nagin announced the plans to get businesses and residents back into the city of New Orleans beginning this weekend.

    The schedule for re-entry includes:

    Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 17 & 18 Business owners in Algiers, CBD, French Quarter and Uptown with ID and proof that they live or work in the area.

    Monday, Sept. 19 Algiers Residents with ID.

    Wednesday, Sept. 21 Residents in zip code 70115 Uptown with ID.

    Friday, Sept. 23 Residents in zip code 70118 Uptown with ID.

    Monday, Sept. 26 Residents in the French Quarter and the rest of the CBD with ID. [/b][/quote]

    For me, this means I could move back on Wednesday of next week, but I'll have to wait until the firm and schools get back up. However, I will be headed back tomorrow for the weekend to help a friend work on his roof. Took 2 big trees through the roof, so we shall see.

    Should be interesting to see what it's like.
    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.

    ppg,

    I know we've had our differences on this board, but you're sincerely in my thoughts and prayers. Godspeed to you.

    P.S. If there's anything that I may can contribute to help, please PM me.

              Well, at least Bush got all of the blacks out of the City for you -- so it should be a lot safer.

              All kidding aside, good luck PPG.

                      This note brought to you by cellular modem. We are hunkered down for the night. Might be a few more citizens uptown, but they would be difficult to find. Plenty of soldiers around. It's weird to drive through your hometown and see soldiers on patrol, at rest, and at checkpoints. Group of National Guard playing some type of dodge ball in the street, a block away from the house on which we were working.

                      Friend's house is pretty well trashed. Tree through the roof, 10x10 hole in ceiling in the living room. Plaster, limbs, wires, lights, insulation everywhere. Wires dangling all over the place outside. Water damage and mildew inside. 5 or 6 big oaks taking houses out every which way.

                      Worked a long time on the roof. Whoever decided to live here before electricity was nuts. It is hot and humid.

                      My house is fine. No damage to the roof, trees fell away from the house, windows intact. Outside glidder flipped over but that was it. All the neighbor's big nasty goldfish were floating, picked apart in the pond. Inside nothing to report. Packed up some more clothes for everyone, got special blankets and pillows for the kids, some toys, and some movies. Then I opened the refrigerator.

                      I held up against the powerful blast of hot fetid stench, until I opened the deli tray. Brutal. Furthermore, something had seriously evolved in the juice of the vegetable tray. Took about 45 minutes to clean, and clear the hideous liquid oozing from the fridge. Friend's refrigetor was so filled with noxious masses which wiggled and squirmed that we duct-taped it shut and hauled it out on the porch. Trash.

                      Car we left on the street was fine as well. Had wanted to park it in the office garage, but ran out of time. Turns out all the cars in the garage were looted. Then neighbor wouldn't let us park in her slightly elevated driveway. Good thing. Tree fell in the driveway.

                      No flooding where I live. Just trees down all over, and it's really dry down here. Everything is brown.
                      From this day forward, I no longer shall tinker with the machinery of death.

                        About as good of news as you could expect in that situation. Good for you!

                          We do have running water, although we are advised not to shower in it. Had to use some water to wash my hands after reaching into the fridge. Probably get my shots on Monday.

                          Not so dry here now, as it begins to rains.

                            Take care, PPG. This has to be hard for you. I'm sorry.

                              Can't complain. We fared way better than most.
