New Orleans: The 2014 ice storm. Did we make it? Did we survive? Here’s the latest report from contributor MM Butterworth:
The 2014 Ice Storm That Almost Ate New Orleans – Will We Survive?
Please – a Moment of Silence for those who suffered and perished in New Orleans in the horrific ice storm these last 48 hours ….oh….it was just a paid day off?….no death or suffering….no reason for the incessant 24 hour news weather updates??
Wait – this just in!
Mayor Mitch Landrieu has issued a Press Release in advance of his TV News Conference in one hour:
“Citizens of New Orleans!
First I would like to take credit for preventing Polar Vortex II – the largest, most dangerous storm system ever to approach New Orleans – from having any impact at all.
That is because in these last frenzied days before the election, the amount of political hot air I personally have generated created a counter-Vortex which snuffed the Ice Storm of The Century before it could make it half way across the Lake. My staff and campaign committee also deserve a lot of credit for the prodigious amounts of steaming warm Southern horse-poop they have been heaping all over the levees and this election cycle – attracting the International Attention which I richly deserve!
I hope everyone hearing my voice, the voice of Liberty and Criminal Justice, the voice of New Streets and New Schools, of all that is Pure and Good, recognizes who it was who declared the State of Emergency just in time to give everyone two paid days off – just before the Election!! Vote Landrieu, Vote Often, Vote for New Orleans!”
Can you believe these politicians?
What? There is a rebuttal from Candidate Bagneris?
This just in:
“Brothers and Sisters,
Mayor Landrieu is not God, and he only shows up in your neighborhood at election time.
His campaign is all hot air, on that we agree.
Now is the time for change! Please go to the polls and vote for the best candidate, not the most bombastic candidate. Please Vote Bagneris for Mayor”
