high and dry perspective

Interesting comment from one person witnessing (participating in?) the widespread looting in New Orleans-

“To be honest with you, people who are oppressed all their lives, man, it’s an opportunity to get back at society” (As a Floridian for the first 32 years of my life, I thought it was just a hurricane)

Why do I think the 20% who elected to stay behind and not evacuate are the ones most likely to behave badly? Nothing like a good ol’ natural disaster to pull a community together. Eventually I expect to hear/read some evangelical religious zealot(s) proclaim New Orleans is being punished for its sinful and wicked ways.

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
