I said it elsewhere but it bears repeating: New Orleans will go on. This town is Buffy. It's already died twice. It's survived fires, floods, wars, Protestants, and Mardi Gras. Sure Katrina's currently taunting it and saying "Ohh, this mortal wound is all itchy." but New Orleans will get on its feet and will tell Katrina that what it wants is for Katrina to get out of its face.
And then it will party, because it is New Orleans and not a vampire slayer.
Well, it made me smile at least :P
