heh heh. I'm like the quarterback, ya see. I'm the play caller, if you will, the caller of plays. I don't need a coach cuz I am the decider. And I decided I need you boys to run some interference for me. I need to get out of your lovely town before that 200,000 person strong angry mob treats me like a duck that's going into gumbo. They like you, so you will act as camboflage so I can slither out unharmed. Hey! Look at your New Orleeeens Saints. There goes George. Heh Heh. Great plan. Heh heh. Just like that nukular scientist you ... folks elected before our savior Ronny.

Kind of tough to avoid today though.

Oh if I was there I am sure I would be. I am up in Virginia. I know when we had our category 1 Hurricane back in 2003 we were without power for little more then a week. It took me months to get my house fully repaired. I think it was 6 months. That was a pretty meaningless storm. I think people lose sight of how long the process takes. That isn't much of a comfort for the people going through it but it is the reality. A year not to have things worked out after a storm of that magnitude really doesn't surprise me. Probably will take more time.

spkb25....You are a little insensitive, don't you think? Tired of hearing about Katrina?...I'm sure that the folks in N.O. would like it to just go away, too, but N.O. needs a lot of work done! I visited with my church to bring supplies, and if you haven't been there, don't say you are sick of hearing about it, because there are people who aren't doing enough about the situation and its a sore subject

Yep. I'd rather be sick of Katrina and be able to just change the channel on my tv and not have to worry about it, but I live in Metairie and don't have to look very far to see a FEMA trailer.

would you guys rather i lie to you to make you feel better? i am tired of hearing about it. that is it. don't want to debate it or talk about it. i am just tired of it. it's an old record to me.

Pretty rude to go on a New Orleans based forum and say that you are tired of hearing about this horrible catostrophy. Its the equivilant of telling a bunch of Jews to not be sensitive about the hollocaust, and that was alot longer than just 1 year. If you are a true New Orleans Saints fan, you can understand how hard this has been, but mabey since you dont live near it, and didn't see firsthand the fallout, hopefully you are just ignorant and not just a total dick

I live in Orleans parish and was evacuated for almost 1 month. I came home Sept 24 and snuck past the checkpoints during Rita because i was tired of not being allowed in my house. I was lucky and had only 9 inches in my house and it still took almost a year to get everything back to normal. Ive cleaned out a dozen of the nastiest refrigerators, gutted several houses with friends, and put up with a lot of other disgusting after effects.

There isnt a day that goes by that we dont think about Katrina and how it has changed everything. But I am tired of hearing about it too especially from the media and other people who dont have to deal with it. But i realize that we got a long way to go before things will return back to normal if they ever even wiill and I understand that it is a necessity to keep bringing it up so that it doesnt just fall under the cracks of our countries shallow attention span and lets the government off the hook to fix the mess they created.

I dont take his comment as insensitive and you shouldnt either....its been a media frenzy this past weekend with the anniversary and we all feel the same way...we just want to get back to normal and now we forced to relive possibly the most traumatic event any of us will ever go through in our lives over and over on every channel. Im with him....im sick of Katrina

We now resume your regular Saints forum already in progress....


Who Dat!
