Bad Weather

I have know this guy, Josh, who lived in New Orleans for a while. He, in fact, was the first person to use the abbreviation "Nola" around me. He's the only person I know who ever lived there, now that I think about it. Anyway, I read his blog today and he pointed out how infuriating it is for him to hear people say something along the lines of "It's too bad, because I always wanted to go to New Orleans" or "I guess I'll never get to see Mardi Gras" or something like that." Because, really, it's the most selfish thing you could say.

A lot of people died and a lot more may yet die. So if you have to, think about how disappointed you are about having your travel plans ruined. But don't say it out loud — at least around me. Because I will judge you harshly if you do.
