Postdiluvian Par-tay!



One still occasionally sees rescue boats abandoned here and there around town, private boats that were commandeered in the days after the storm and used to rescue people from the floodwaters, then left where they were as the waters receded.

This one was left in the neutral ground in front of the University of New Orleans. Students returned in January, and since then it has been covered in fraternity graffiti. Whoo-hoo!

    I just saw an abandoned car today spray painted with a love note to somebody named Jasmine.
    Is that a yellow tow sticker on the boat?

    I just get more and more proud to be an alumna of U.N.O.'s "tin shed" department...
