I think the whole ‘merry christmas’ movement (you know people who woke up one day and decided to be offended by the phrase ‘happy holidays’) is yet another diversion set up by the extreme right to keep us from focusing on what’s really going on (or what’s not going on). You know real issues, like the fact that our government has forsaken New Orleans. New Orleans has always been my favorite place, second only to my home town (NYC) & this whole situation breaks my heart. It makes no sense that we would let such a wonderful place cease to exist. :-(
Can’t help but wonder what Pops would be thinkin’ if he was still alive to see this tragedy. If for no other reason, we at the very least owe it to his legacy to restore the wonderful place of his birth.
