“heeey livejournal, it's soopageek. i may make a couple of voice posts over the course of the day, just to kind of capture what i'm seeing and feeling as the moment presents itself. i just drove through the northern suburbs of New Orleans, on my way into downtown and.. it's.. it's like nothing i've ever seen. it looks like something you would expect to see in a war-torn city or something. entire neighborhoods just deserted, and debris all over the streets and buildings that look like they've been bombed out. some of it is from storm damage, others from, i guess, you know, looting and fire and things like that. i mean there's still a lot of signs of life, a lot of traffic, businesses open- but there's almost just as many businesses that are boarded up. just now coming into downtown, i figure i'll go in downtown first and then work my way out and then check out some of the suburbs, later. but, just wanted to uh.. catch it while it was fresh- fresh in front of my eyes. i'm sure i'll talk and write more later, and have tons of pictures.”
