As if it wasn’t bad enough that a vast majority of Louisiana and the Gulf Coast looks like Katrina just happened yesterday, but now this?
You have GOT to be kidding me with this shit.
I remember last year going to New Orleans for the Jazz Festival. We went to a juke joint over off Bernard in 5th ward to see some family.
It looked like we were only about a week from missing having to wade through the muddy waters Katrina left.
Most of the houses that were still standing were boarded, half of most of the structures rotten. Gaping holes decorating the the foundation. Windows knocked out. Mold eating at paint. Roofs caved in. X’s still spray painted on doors and broad sides marking how many bodies had been found in each house. 1. 6. 3. The ruin went on for blocks. It didn’t just look like your regular, run down hood. It looked like we’d stepped into the middle of a battlefield. The house may as well had been bombed. Trailers littered the sidewalks and brown patched front yards. You could see where some people were living in half a house, the other part unlivable but still being forced to stay there. And all I could think was, this was summer of 2007. Damn near 2 years after the storm hit.
And now you mean to tell me, these people that have been living in trailers all this time that they probably had to fight tooth and nail to get to begin with starting complaining of respiratory issues in 2005 and you are JUST NOW realizing the trailers you gave them are giving them formaldahyde poisoning?
Screw this 08 election. I’m moving to Toronto.
(I didn’t mean it Obama!!!!!)
(and please don’t forget about this post cuz I do need some advice.)
