New Orleans Update

So I mocked Mother Nature for being able to outrun an ice storm and then New Orleans got hit by a tornado this morning. I think I'll refrain from sticking my tongue out at her for the duration of my time here.

I'm in Chalmette, La., today, a town about 15 miles east of New Orleans. I am happy to report that, total Katrina devastation aside, the people's spirits here are as strong as ever, as is the amount of lard they jam into their foodstuffs. I just consumed a biscuit that I can only assume will do for my arteries what Sherman did for Atlanta.

Ah yes, that is why "mom's cooking" always tasted so much better than anything prepared today. Why? Because there was always a big crock of lard in the fridge used for cooking and baking. Oh, how I miss those days!

Yeah, crap, that tornado touched down 6 blocks from my house.
