To all my homies, money makers, rump shakers, players, ballers, pimp and hoes. To all my many brothas, sistas, my creole family. To the great city that taught me the benefits of being a gentlemen and share with me it's secert of a great burbon. To the alcohol soaked city that gave me my first review, brandon barker, and an lesson on life at the age of 21 that I would have never learned from any other noun at any other time; I send my love. You will always have a place in my heart and you are with me during your rough time. You charmed and care for me from the moment I stepped into your presence, I am honored to have the love to give back.

 

You're in my prayers.

Ah, New Orleans...

Home of Red beans and rice, Marie Laveau, Dixieland, beignets, staggering drunk down Bourbon St with a "hurricane" in your hand, giant cockroaches... being bathed in sweat before 10:00AM- and NOT due to sex... Crawfish Etouffé... home of a Streetcar Named Desire, A Confederacy of Dunces. Cat People, the Dixie Cups, One Arm, Doctor John, and beads, beads, beads.

The sultry, half-naked queen will take on whatever Life has to blow her way, and she will live to tell about it!

I have never been to New Orleans and somewhat regret the fact even though I am not much into drunken extravaganzas. As one who speaks French and enjoys funky old places, I realize I should have made the effort to get there, as there were several times when i was not all that far away and could have made the effort.

 

The latest news this morning is that Katrina has wobbled a bit to the east, and that may be good news for the city (although not for its neighbours to the east). I'm hoping the old lady is spared the worst of Katrina's winds and that those levees hold so that I may still have the opportunity to sample the big easy's charms some day. Good luck, old girl!

Looks like N.O. dodged the worst of Katrina. Not that the damage isn't extensive, but the whole city isn't under 30 feet of water, as some forecasters were predicting in macabre glee. x( From what CNN reports it sounds like the pumping system is largely intact. If that's true, it should be possible to dry out the city in a few weeks.

 

The damage sounds similar to what Hurricane Betsy did in 1965. Betsy hit around this time of year, too. I literally arrived in New Orleans by train to begin undergraduate school at that well-known "uptown" university through which McAllister Drive runs at the same time Betsy was starting to blow! My cousins picked me up at Union Station. The wind was already whipping up, knocking newspaper vending racks around the streets. I spent the night at my cousins' home near the university, where I managed to sleep through the worst of the storm because I was exhausted by the nearly 24-hour train trip. In the morning the street was impassable because of all the downed tree limbs, and the house had sustained minor damage, but there was no flooding uptown. Downtown (in N.O. that means the area below Canal Street) there was considerable flooding, in some of the same areas that are reported flooded by Katrina. Lots of roofs torn off, broken glass everywhere in the central business district, but loss of life was pretty low and N.O. recovered, although it took a year or two for the city to really get back to "normal." Having been there and done that, my heart goes out to all the New Orleanians who had to abandon their homes and face returning to Katrina's damage and destruction. But New Orleanians are a remarkably tough and resilient lot, and I'm confident that by Carnival the good times will once again be rolling and Katrina will be a fading memory. . .

Well, things are worse than I thought -- if the levees hadn't broken the effects of Katrina might have been similar to those of Betsy, when only parts of the city were flooded. The news photos are heartbreaking; there don't seem to be any parts of New Orleans left untouched. It's going to take a lot longer for the city to recover than from Betsy. But like I said, New Orleanians are tough and resilient. They've survived other floods, epidemics, wars, blockades, you name it. They'll survive this, too.

 

The news reports understandably have focussed on the damage in New Orleans and along the Gulf Coast, but has anything heard what happened to the parishes downriver from New Orleans? Is there anything left of them?

My Next 5 Overnights goes to the help of my beloved

 

Taking from a fellow gentleman who did this during the tsunami campaign. I am offering the "proceeds" of my next 5 overnights to the help and restoration of the south. I realize that it is not much in regards to what will be needed, however anything is a start.

 

Now how will you know the "proceeds’ will go towards their relief? Awww, well taking again from a fellow escort, easy; those who chose to hire me will make the donation themselves. Send an email to me with your intention date and place, suit size, sport played in high school...all the usual information; forward me the conformation email of your donation or wait till we connect and make the donation together. Either way, it involves trust, me trusting that you wont charge the donation back to your card, you trusting that host random sex parties while you are sleep. But I have hope that it all works out for the best.

 

I wish all the best in New Orleans and the rest of the south. My family lost a vacation condo in gulf shores, yeah yeah poor us, but what is happening in our backyard is pretty serious and we really shouldn’t hold that Civil War (War Amongst the States) thing against them.

 

KY stay well buddy. I personally think the airlines should be sued for at least lost wages and incipience for leaving you guys stranded, a winnable case. I don’t understand why the council of the airlines didn’t advice them of such, the winning awards would most likely combine to much more than the cost of not canceling the flights, I guess they're are not economist.

 

cool, calm, collected...nuf said
