"Wednesday began with TV and radio coverage of live prayers by the governor and a collection of holy men."
Maybe they should've been praying BEFORE the storm hit. Oh, yeah – they were. You’d think they’d have learned something from that.
He’d seen hell where a kind of heaven should be.
He’d heard references to Sodom and Gomorrah.
“Maybe God’s going to cleanse us.”
Damn, I guess God DOES work in mysterious ways. If this is a cleansing, I’d hate to see how he gets his hands dirty.
Oh, boy - here come the Sodom & Gomorrah references. I KNEW the homos had something to do with it!!
But they weren’t ALL sodomites. As demonstrated every year during Mardi gras, NOLA is a steamy, inebriated hotbed of beaded debauchery. But it’s also the proud land of good ol’ plantation owners.
What could they be being punished for? Hmmm…I already hypothesized the whole shellfish thing…but, what could they have done that is so horrible, so deplorable, to warrant disaster on such an, uh – BIBLICAL - scale?
Ah, I got it! Aren’t Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama RED states?
Yeah…they are, aren’t they.
