Gotta love the Cresent City and their resolve. From the City of New Orleans, comes more of the flavor for setting new standards. Refrigerators have become a way to express political dissent equal to Freeway blogging.
In New Orleans’ exuberant French Quarter, even a discarded refrigerator can be a canvas for artistic or political expression.
Elsewhere, hurricane cleanup crews may be content to set the smelly iceboxes on the sidewalk and forget about them. But here, residents have begun dressing up their cast-off coolers with feathers, bow ribbons, and enough cold commentary to give a political leader the chills.
One French Quarter fridge is addressed as though for delivery to President Bush at the White House — COD.
And a third sarcastically recalls the “great job” Mike Brown was said to be doing, shortly before he was put on ice as FEMA’s man in charge of disaster relief
Just goes to show, that all the questions on if Louisiana could rebound from this, was just a bunch of babble. We’ve still got our sense of humor, we have some good local leaders, and we will have more after ’06.
