    It is the tents that get me every time.  All these months later and people are living in camping tents.  Months and months later.  If you don't have a FEMA trailer and you can't afford to move or stay in a hotel, you are SOL.  Wal-Mart has tents available.

    It is a disgrace.  A stinking, festering disgrace.  And this year will be another bad one.  They are predicting Atlantic storms this time.  There is no decent evacuation plan for Savannah and what in the hell will they do if New York is hit?

    The city is so deceptive right now.  You can get your tapas at Mimi's or shake your tail in the Quarter.  Apart from the slower service - and some inexperienced line cook errors - you really can be fooled into believing everything is okay.  And then you drive into the 9th ward and there are the tents.  You drive into Chalmette and there are the tents.  American citizens living in tents for months with no relief in site.

    Meet me in Cognito, baby
