I originally just posted a link to this post in a friend's journal who I know is interested in such memories, but then I realized "what the bloody blue hell am I thinking? This is something that should be shared with everyone," so here. Have a link, wherein leighdb reminisces about New Orleans, before Katrina tore the place apart at the seams two years ago yesterday.
Damn, two years already? And look at where we are now. And try not to let it break your heart.
