You're soaking in it.

Last Wednesday marked Hurricane Katrina's second anniversary. In remembrance, the President flew down here and created a peculiar photo-op by grabbing our mayor's face and sort of squooshing it. The BBC website ran a photo caption stating that Preservation Hall is on “the corner of Bourbon Street and Royal.” (Bourbon and Royal are parallel streets.) And I overheard this conversation as a chef at a local restaurant was finishing up work for the evening:

“So your shift's over?”

“Yeah. I'm going over to Phillip's Bar and remember Katrina.”

“They're having some kind of thing?”

“I'm just gonna get drunk.”
