The New New Orleans
By Michael Tisserand
"Why is this our problem?"
I say this to Cindy. My family and I have been in her home in Carencro, La., about 150 miles west of New Orleans, for a month now.
I say this to her when she brings up the matter of the various children in our evacuee household, trying to plan out the next day and just who was going to care for whom. I say this to her on the night of my 42nd birthday, a few hours after my wife, Tami, received the news that shes a top candidate for a job in another city. A job that might mean that weve already spent our last night together in New Orleans, the Friday before the storm.
