The Accidental Good Samaritan

A guy opened my gallery door a few moments ago, the door alarm made its usual chirp to alert the door had been opened, I glanced up to see from the corner of my eye the umbrella next to the front door being taken outside. When I realized it was not a co-worker but rather some guy with a towel on his head he was already at the end of the block in today's down pour. The last thing I saw, while I stared and contemplated running in the rain after him to wrestle back the umbrella, was him taking the towel from his head as it had served its purpose. No use for it now. He has an umbrella.

To the 6 foot tall, middle aged, slightly heavy set black man in the verticle red and navy collared rugby shirt I bid you a good day and I hope you stay dry.  But Zack probably wants his umbrella. You can drop it off on your way back.

My favorite tid-bit from the local blogs on this day of reflection:

when you meet us now and you look into our eyes, you will see the saddest story ever told. Our hearts are broken into a thousand pieces. But don’t pity us. We’re going to make it. We’re resilient. After all, we’ve been rooting for… the Saints for 35 years. That’s got to count for something…

James Perry is a refreshing alternative so far to what we have come to expect from New Orleans politicians.

Dear Blake

There's one thing we already know about the first fundraising results of the New Orleans Mayor’s race: Our opponents will have raised thousands upon thousands of dollars for their war chests from the status quo.

We've never done that, and we never will.

Instead, we will continue to count on you and hundreds of individual donors who support this campaign by giving only what they can afford.

Why? Because the fundamental change of how we do things in New Orleans does not come from the top down -- it comes from the bottom up.

So rather than having expensive fundraisers and taking contributions from those who would work to hold our city back, I'm hosting a different kind of fundraiser that gives regular people like us the chance to plug into our campaign and have our voices heard.

In fact, the media is already talking about it (

Donate before 11:59 p.m. tonight and help us finally have the New Orleans we deserve, not the New Orleans we want.
