Who cares for the welfare of the elderly of Louisiana?
Find Mrs./ Ms. Martin, give her a hug and a team of brilliant lawyers please...
With the necessitation of lawsuits such as these post Katrina, the pre-Katrina publicity promoting Louisiana as a "Great Place to Retire" rings hollow. To place blame on the levees for the lack of evacuation prior
to a 450 mile wide storm is a red herring. "Red Herring" is a very nice
word because I have sooo many more inappropriate foul-mouthed words to hissssssss on this nursing home evacuation issue. The levees were somewhat functional prior to Katrina and have nothing
, absolutely NOTHING
to do with a timely evacuation. Read what Victor Hull had to say from St. Pete's Beach.

NEW ORLEANS PEEPS - PLEASE LISTEN!!
If you are from New Orleans, or lived there pre-K care about the city regardless, or whatever, PLEASE LISTEN to this latest radio show I did.... This is VERY important information to understand!
*Short attention span types need not apply.*http://homepage.mac.com/guymonadams/mp3/DeadCityChronicles12.mp3
If you even begin to understand this kind of info and want more, hit my site for all my radio archives and more info... http://www.guymonadams.com
-- in the "MEDIA" section you will find the radio show I've been working on as an "ex-patriot" out here in Austin. The podcast seems to be getting a lot of hits, but I'm not hearing much response from people in NOLA specifically, which distirbs me deeply. :/
The associated site for the show's general theme is http://www.katrinatruth.com
- a work in progress, BUT HAS A FORUM where I would LOVE to hear your Katrina related stories!!
Thanks for being conscious. ;)

LIVE @ Elysium w/Voltaire on Thursday!
Come out early this Thursday, February 8th to Elysium in Austin, TX, and check out this special acoustic version of my solo material
! I'll be going on between 10 and 10:30pm. And stick around for one of the most brilliant and fucking FUNNY musical talents on the planet, VOLTAIRE
!! Seriously, click that link and you'll see why I always tell the uninitiated that this guy is more like going to see a genius "gothic" stand up comic -- A MUST SEE!!
And to be clear with all my newer Patriot friends here in Austin -- NO this is NOT my big anti-NWO stuff I've recently told you about. That's God's Little Toy
, which is coming down the pipe later in the spring/summer. But in the mean time, EVERYONE is invited to come make fun of me messing up my own dark anti-love songs.
We'll laugh, we'll cry, we'll drink a lot of Irish whiskey! It's gonna be a blast!!

New Orleans in Austin
From this thread in the neworleans LJ
: rayinaustin says:
Gene's Po-Boy's on East 11th is the only place to get real New Orleans food in Austin. Gene and his wife are from here, and they get it. And they do a good drippy roast beef, and spaghetti casserole on Wednesdays.
The best place to watch Saints games is Shoal Creek Saloon at 9th & Lamar. Stay away from their po-boys, but the duck gumbo is awesome, and the chef is from Bogalusa.
Also, the owner of Casey's Sno-Ball's on Airport & 51st is from Gentilly, and the sno-balls are awesome. ulitave adds:
don't miss Quality seafood out on Airport, or Nubian Queen at Rosewood and 11th. But definitely go to Gene's.

Looking for displaced New Orleanians.
I am a student looking to conduct a survey of New Orleanians who were displaced by the hurricane and currently live outside New Orleans. The survey is only a few questions long and will be conducted by email. If you’d be willing to help me out by answering just a few questions, please send an email to maozed at gmail dot com letting me know that you would like to participate. I would really appreciate your help.
Hopefully this kind of post is allowed in the community. I did not see any restrictions forbidding it, and it is created specifically for people who have left New Orleans, so its members are exactly the kind of people who can help with what I'm studying. I hope you are all well and I would be grateful for your help.

Weight Training (from a newly arrived New Orleanean)
I have a friend, John Kelly, who's relocating to Austin. He's heartbroken to leave New Orleans, but it's just something he had to do, I think to keep doing the work he loves.
When I stil lived in New Orleans (I grew up there, and lived there a while after college;school at Jean Gordon/St. Paul's/Ben Franklin, then jobs at Kyoto restaurant/Offbeat Magazine/Musical Arts Society of New Orleans/Pan-American Life Conference Center, for those interested), I went to him for personal training.
BUT WAIT! I am not remotely an athlete, and I'm no fan of exercise. He does superslow weight training, which really helped increase my strength with just half an hour every 1-2 weeks. It's really intense, but it's my kind of workout (i.e. not frequent).
So this is kind of a pre-promotion for his services. He's getting set up really soon, near the Arboretum, I think. I'll get his contact information up here as soon as I have it, but I thought it would be nice to get the word out if you can. He's a really interesting guy--taught classes at UNO, too, and is excessively devoted to his two cocker spaniel puppies. Drop me a note if you'd like to make sure I get you some contact info and other details when I have them.
Thanks! I'm really glad this community exists here now, even if it was born out of such bad circumstances.

I'll be heading back to New Orleans the first week of February and I have an available seat in my truck.
If anyone in the Austin area is in need of a ride then just leave me a comment about how to contact you and we will see if we can work something out. The only cost to you would be to help with gas money, the down side is that cargo space may be limited (its just a pickup and I don't have a trailer). I have not set an exact date as of yet, but the range will be Jan 31st through Feb 4th, its an 8 hour drive so I will be looking to leave around 10am.
1.4 million residents displaced from Louisiana is far too many in my opinion
