Like Fats so memorably sang, "I hate blue Monday. Got to work like a slave all day."
But at least here in New Orleans we continue to have work, unlike so staggeringly many of our fellow unemployed citizens around the country. And we have this work almost exclusively as a result of the massive government spending to rebuild New Orleans, which has continued unabated six years since hurricane Katrina. Never thought I would say this during the time of the crisis, when they did nothing but bumble and stumble, but thank God for FEMA.
Now, thanks to the new zerObama deal with the devils, funding for essential services like FEMA will also be on the chopping block. Pray for sunny weather, y'all. We sure as hell will need it.
