I'm glad I ignored y'all's advice and stayed put. I've had the best time recently. I reckon this hurricane is the opposite of the Great Depression. During the Depression we didn't get a thing for 12 years! So far during the hurricane I got 300 cartons of cigarettes, a new phonograph, an air mattress, and so much jewelry. You're allowed to take whatever you want in New Orleans now. Some people have to stay on their roofs, but some of us other folk can get around just fine. They call us "the looters" cause that's Cajun for "Hurricanes be damned!" Ha ha ha.
