New Orleans

I'm in New Orleans for the week, so won't be updating much...

We drove down from NC yesterday. Long ass drive.

Anyway. Things here are much as they were a couple of months back. Fewer volunteers around, still working like crazy to get this city back together. There's a much more depressed feeling in the air than there was seven weeks ago when I was last here. A bunch of nasty stuff went down in the last few weeks and it's all pretty crazy.

Oh well, more later...

For example, St Mary's is cracking down on randoms mooching and not doing any work. There were also a (small) number of sexual assaults. Seems to happen when there are three site coordinators for 500 people...

The long termers are stressed as fuck, as usual but even more so. A lot of them are leaving, so they're desperately looking for replacements.

More when I get back...lots to say...
