gotta love LSU campus- a world of its own! the main roads (outside of the campus area) seem to still be congested (during the day at least), my
father suggested that tinkering with the timing on the traffic lights to allow for the greater numbers of the vehicles on the roads may alleviate some
of the frustration, but i haven't seen any indication that this is happening... i can deal with the traffic, the gunfire had my nerves on end, tho...
that has subsided for the most part, and things at least 'feel' normal again.
so are you back in new orleans? many of my friends didn't have anything to return to- their homes would have to be gutted before they would be
inhabitable. i've heard that some of the businesses have reopened and that nagin called for residents to return to the city, but it seems it will be
some time before everyone is able or comfortable in doing so.
if you are in the area, let me know if there's anything i can do to be of assistance... good restaurant recommendations, directions, help in any
way... i don't know what your interests are, but there are regular poetry readings every tuesday night (good place to vent), art openings nearly
every friday (one at occulus downtown this week), every saturday there is a farmer's market... i feel so inadequate, but honestly, don't hesitate
to ask if there is anything at all that i could do- i mean that in the most sincere way- you guys have all suffered enough, and we here in BR have
found our hearts a bit larger and, for me anyway, it's a pleasure to do what we can...
wishing you all the best...
