Back to normal?

I noticed a disturbing uptick in crime in New Orleans during my last few weeks in the city, and apparently it wasn't my imagination. A friend from my old Bywater neighborhood made note of the same troubling trend in an email this week.

Mind you, this same friend who chastised me for leaving New Orleans is now looking for a new city to call home.

On a lighter note, my friend had this to say about one of his neighbors:

"The Voodoo queen down the block from my house is having her annual crime ritual. I asked her about last year's hurricane ritual and what the hell happened. She said that she didn't include levees in the ceremony."

Who needs expensive engineering studies? Now we know.
